Fixed in upstream eel cvs:

2006-08-23  Alexander Larsson  <>

	* eel/eel-vfs-extensions.c: (eel_vfs_has_capability):
	Fix crash that happened on DnD from firefox in nautilus.

Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2006-08-23 14:42:43 UTC

nautilus backtrace file

This problem still happens in eel2-2.15.92-2.fc6.

Comment 4 Alexander Larsson 2006-08-25 08:47:41 UTC
Strange. It works for me. Are you sure you restarted nautilus after upgrading eel?
Can you give me the exact steps (what url and whatnot) you did to make it crash?

Comment 5 sangu 2006-08-25 09:27:05 UTC
Of course,  restarted nautilus ( linux reboot).
DnD All image file in make nautilus crash.

This  URL :
Drag and drop the image to nautilus.

Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2006-08-25 13:35:39 UTC
Seems to be a gnome-vfs http bug, as this segfaults in an assert:

Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2006-08-28 20:59:39 UTC
The assert we are hitting here is 

  case NE_RETRY: 
    g_assert_not_reached ();

in resolve_result.

Since NE_REDIRECT _is_ handled in the caller (http_get_file_info), it seems
that http_get_file_info needs to handle retry, too ?

a patch

Here is a patch that makes the gnomevfs-info crash go away. 
I don't really know enough about neon to judge if it is reasonable 
or correct.

Comment 9 Alexander Larsson 2006-08-29 07:40:31 UTC
I'm not very good at this stuff either. I asked gicmo to take a look at it.

Comment 10 Matthias Clasen 2006-08-30 18:59:13 UTC
Fixed in 2.15.92-2

Comment 11 sangu 2006-08-31 11:33:09 UTC
$ gnomevfs-info
Error: Too many links

When doing dnd, nautius doesn't
crash. but doesn't be did dnd.

Comment 12 Alexander Larsson 2006-09-01 13:00:18 UTC
I'm not sure exactly what the problem is with the link depth, see upstream bug
for discussion. However, at least it doesn't crash anymore.

Comment 13 Christian Kellner 2006-09-01 19:36:51 UTC
The problem is not the link depth but the server being "broken". See comment. Btw patch btw is in cvs head and will be in for 2.16.
