Nautilus locks up on switching desktops w/ FTP link open

Bug #28515 reported by Brian Burger on 2006-01-14
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

I have two FTP links mounted in Nautilus, to two seperate servers. If I open one of them, leave it open, and then switch desktops to use another app, most of the time Nautilus will lock up and require a Force Kill.

This isn't consistent, but probably over 50% of the time with either of the FTP mounts. (and of course now that I'm testing for it, it's behaving itself...)

Thanks for your bug. What version if nautilus/ubuntu do you use? Could you get a backtrace of the hang?
- gnome-session-remove nautilus
- gdb nautilus
(gdb) run
... hang
(gdb) thread apply all bt

Is your connection to the ftp slow?

Ubuntu 5.10, and Nautilus 2.12.1.

I'll keep trying to get it to hang w/ backtrace, and post here when I have something. This is an irritating bug, all the more so because it doesn't consistently appear...

The connection doesn't seem especially slow.

"gnome-session-remove nautilus" kills any existing Nautilus session, which is what I expected.

However, "gdb nautilus" doesn't appear to actually start a new Naut. instance. I get lots of "(no debugging symbols found)" scrolling past in gnome-terminal, but no nautilus...

Should I be starting Nautilus normally (from the Places menu) after running "gdb nautilus", or what? "man gdb" wasn't too helpful - according to it "gdb <name of app>" should work.

I'd like to get some more info for this bug, it really is irritating...

you need to type "run" to gdb to start nautilus as described by the previous comment
