Restoring file from Trash Bin causes pcmanfm to Shut Down

Bug Description

Binary package hint: pcmanfm

Note: This applies to files on external USB drives only. Local files are *not* affected. This problem does not exist in the previous version of Ubuntu, that is 10.10.

Restoring file deleted by pcmanfm from the Trash Bin using pcmanfm causes the application to shut down. The files do not get restored as a result. Cutting and pasting the deleted files back to the original directory produces weird full path filenames.

Update: pcmanfm will crash when doing a restoration, regardless of whether the original files resided on a local or external disk. The full path filenames problem occurs only when the original files were on an external USB disk.
