Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-panel

In an up-to-date ubuntu 9.04:

I don't know if I have the correct package. Here's the problem:

I have:
  export LC_ALL=C
in my ~/.xprofile file, so that 'ls -al' will list files in proper alphabetical order. '.' comes before 'a', so I want to see my dotfiles before my regular files, not mixed together.

I have some bookmarks in nautilus. These show up in the Places>Bookmarks folder. But for any bookmark to a folder with a non-ascii character in its name, clicking it from the Place>Bookmarks menu shows an 'opening ...' entry in the panel for a few seconds, but nautilus never opens a window. If I open my home folder and then click the bookmark it does work however.

Here's how to reproduce:

1. put this line in ~/.xprofile:
export LC_ALL=C
then log out and in again

2. make a directory with an accented character in its name:
mkdir $(echo ab | tr a \\303 | tr b \\251)
that makes a folder which shows up as 'e acute' if LC_ALL isn't set to C

3. bookmark that directory in nautilus

4. click the bookmark in the gnome-panel Places>Bookmark menu.

you'll see that it tries to open the folder, but fails after a while

5. open your home folder and try the bookmark from there - it works

6. remove the LC_ALL=C line from ~/.xprofile, log out and in again

7. try the bookmark again, and it works now

Closing the gnome-panel task since upstream assigned this to nautilus.
