Bug Description

Nautilus seems to ignore hidden file (files with a dot before the name) size in "contents:" field inside "Basic" tab of directory properties.
You can simply test this by creating, for example, 1gb file inside a directory and re-naming with a "." (dot) in front of its name. Then you can view, in the directory properties, that disk occupancy ignore the hidden file size just created.
This issue was also present in previous ubuntu releases.
