Description Aleix Solé 2007-04-10 11:45:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070327 Ubuntu/dapper-security Firefox/

Description of problem:
In a computer with two nfs filesystems mounted, the "Not on the same filesystem" error appears when:

1) Trying to drag and drop a file between the shares

2) Trying to delete a file on one of the shares

On nautilus 2.14 with libgail17 (ie Fedora Core 5) this was working perfectly. Seems to be a nautilus (or underlying libs?) problem.

Other causes have been discarded:

- Files can be moved using drag and drop between two konqueror browsers
- Files can be moved using the console

nautilus- rpm from fc7 has also been tried, replacing 2.16 via rpm --erase and rpm -i, but doesn't fix the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
nautilus-2.16.2-7, nautilus- with libgail-gnome-1.1.3-1.2.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Mount two NFS shares with rw permissions with some test files
2.Navigate them graphically using two nautilus windows
3. Move a file from one of the windows to the other one => nautilus pops out an error box
4. Try to delete a file from one of the windows => same error box (moving to .Trash?)

Actual Results:
"Not on same filesystem" error popup

Expected Results:
Files should be moved correctly between the two mounted NFS shares.
