Description Paul F. Johnson 2005-04-17 16:19:43 UTC
Description of problem:
If I open a Nautilus file window and select preferences->show hidden, I have to
close the window and re-open before the hidden files are shown

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the Home icon
2. Edit->Preferences->Show hidden and backup files (click on)
3. Close
Actual results:
The window has to be closed and reopened before the hidden and backup files are
shown. Clicking on reload does not show the hidden or backup files. Minimising
and maximising does not show the hidden files either.

Expected results:
Hidden and backup files are shown once the "Close" icon is clicked

Additional info:
When going in reverse, the hidden files vanish when the show hidden is
deselected and Close clicked on without needing to close and reopen the window.

this is happening to me too. in addition the text "Loading..." appears ,as it
shoud be ,under the folders in side pane (tree view) on the left when checking
"Show hidden files"...

Closing this bug as the behaviour seems to have normalised :-)
