Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

Nautilus doesn't show tip texts for bookmarks, where the whole path stands.
Places menu does it ("bookmark_tiptext_placesmenu.png"), open dialog does it as well ("bookmark_tiptext_opendialog.png"), but nautilus not ("bookmark_NO_tiptext_nautilus.png").

Ubuntu Karmic Alpha 6, Nautilus "1:2.27.92-0ubuntu1".

If you have two bookmarks with the same folder name (like "bin" in screenshots) it's really annoying to find out which bookmark you really need...
This bug affects all Ubuntu users, it's easy to fix - a really PAPER CUT :)
