Error while copying mounts

Bug #261484 reported by Michael Terry on 2008-08-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
The Dennis Project
nautilus (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

1) Go to "Computer"
2) Right click on a data CD (or any mount) and select Copy
3) Go to "Home Folder"
4) Right click and select Paste

Up comes an error that says "Error while copying XXX: Can't open mountable file"

I would expect either that nautilus wouldn't let me select Copy from the mount's context menu or that nautilus would try to copy all the contents of the mount, treating it like any old folder. The current behavior seems bad.
