Bug Description

Found on Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot 64bit.
Concerns seahorse-plugins, version 3.0+git20111010-0~md1.

When you try to encrypt a folder, or several files at once with the "Encrypt…" context-menu option in Nautilus, the dialog that allows you to choose an archive type (when you want to bundle all files as a single archive) is disabled, effectively making it impossible to use the GUI to encrypt multiple files as a single, encrypted archive.

This looks like the same bug, reported to Redhat's bug tracker:

Hi, it affects me to with Ubuntu 12.04 (Unity). I have the same bug. My workaround, create a tarball before encrypt.
