Bug Description

The progress bar seems to fail showing progress whenever the total file size limit of the copy process is larger or equal than 2147483648 bytes (= 2 GiB).

 1. Create a bad dummy file:
     dd if=/dev/zero of=dummy.fail bs=1073741824 count=2
 2. Create a working dummy file (one byte less):
     cp dummy.bad dummy.good
     truncate -s 2147483647 dummy.good
 3. Open Nautilus and copy each one separately to a different place. Filesystems and partitions shouldn't matter.

 * dummy.good: The progress bar follows the progress shown in Nautilus' file dialog.
 * dummy.bad: The progress bar doesn't follow the progress shown in Nautilus' file operation dialog.

Using Nautilus 1:3.1.90-0ubuntu2 on up-to-date Oneiric.

Sorry, this was really a stupid mistake. I forgot an "int" around that lead to this overflow... :/
