nautilus (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

In the main Trash window (trash:///), directories are listed with their proper name, even if they contain Unicode. For example, a directory called "Иосиф Виссарионович Сталин" [*] - dragged to the trash - would be listed as "Иосиф Виссарионович Сталин". That is good and proper.

The problem is when you click in the directory in Trash. Now you see something like the following in the location control:


The correct behavior should be something like trash:///Иосиф Виссарионович Сталин/ . Nautilus is a file browser - not a web browser.

[*] Stalin, as throwing him in the Trash wouldn't have been a bad idea.
