Bug Description

I right click on a folder and select 'Synchronize to Ubuntu One'. Nothing happens. No feedback.

I happen to have debugging switched on and see the following in my log:

2010-04-03 17:11:47,864 - ubuntuone.SyncDaemon.EQ - DEBUG - push_event: VM_UDF_CREATE_ERROR, args:('/media/sda1/Music', "INVALID_PATH: path isn't inside user home: '/media/sda1/Music'"), kw:{}

Stuart,
Thank you for taking the time to submit this bug report. I can confirm this behavior. Selecting a folder outside of the users $HOME results in no notification to the user that this operation is not successful.

The expected behavior:
R-click the folder outside of $HOME
Select 'Syncronize with Ubuntu One'
A dialog box opens telling the user this operation is not permitted.

thank you,
duanedesign
