Description Martin 2014-01-21 18:54:00 UTC
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL-7.0-20140109.n.0

Steps to Reproduce: 
In Settings go to the Privacy panel
Execute this command: $ ls /tmp > temp_before


1.    Click Purge Trash & Temporary Files
2.    Enable: "Automatically Purge Temporary Files".
3.    In "Purge After" select: "Immediately".


Actual results: 
Exactly same files are kept in /tmp. Even after reboot. I have to click on "Purge Temporary Files" to trigger operation.

Expected results:
Execute command: $ ls /tmp > temp_after

and compare the two files temp_before and temp_after. In temp_after should be less files than in the temp_before - some files should be purged.

Note: It's not expected to have the /tmp directory empty.

The purge runs about once an hour.

It's clearly immediate compared to the *days* of wait in the other options, but it's not instant and continuous. It's working as designed.

Ok, please change "immediately" string to "1 hour" to reflect real behavior. We don't want to confuse users.

Makes sense to me.

Comment 4 Martin 2014-02-24 14:20:04 UTC
This is trivial string change. Bastien, could you simply commit string change from "immediately" to "1 hour"? I see ack above from Allan.

We're not going to have translations for that new string

The string "1 hour" is already translated for other combo boxes in the same panel, so we're good.
