Not able to get Nautilus back when copying

Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

I click on the home-button in the launcher and get a windows displaying the files in my home folder. I then start copying these to somewhere else (takes quite a lot of time), and while copying I, by mistake, close the original window displaying my files. When I now click on the home-button again, the progress window displaying the progress of my copying is displayed, and I have to wait until the copying is done before I can get the home-button to display my files again.

Hi Ader,

What's happening is that when you click the Nautilus icon on the Launcher, you are telling the Launcher to open the one existing Nautilus window, which will be the progress bar. If you want to open a *new* Nautilus window then 'middle click' the Nautilus icon.

Hope that helps.
