Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

I just noticed Nautilus produces a lot of console output. Maybe it shouldn't, especially all the warnings. It could be indicative of a more serious bug.

By the way, I'm running on Ubuntu 9.10. A similar "issue", if you could call it that, existed in previous versions, though it didn't emit many warnings, especially about the hash table or unknown signals.

If you launch nautilus from the command line then it will produce various warnings and errors. This is normal. If you launch nautilus as a normal users then you may still see some warnings and errors but there should be significantly fewer. Below is an example.

I am marking your bug as "invalid" because there does not appear to be a bug in this report. If you have further questions then I am happy to convert your bug to a question so it can be posted in the forums.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better!

GLib critical messages generally are bugs, and are usually a good sign that something is going to go (or already has gone) horribly wrong. Nevertheless, the critical messages there are understood and already fixed in Lucid (and don't really cause any issue anyway), but please don't close bugs like that in future, without investigating where the message comes from and why it happens.

Thanks
