Description fred-m 2002-12-13 11:52:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
If I am displaying a directory, remove this directory with a different
application (say, on a terminal) and press the reload button, the window is closed.

Two small windows with error messages are displayed. However, if the window
displaying the directory is the only one that Nautilus has open, these two small
windows disappear too fast to read their contents. From the end-user, it seems
that Nautilus has crashed (the fact that the window is closed is, at least, very
inconvenient).

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a temporary directory (mkdir ~/test)
2. Run Nautilus and display this directory
3. Remove this directory from a terminal (rmdir ~/test)
4. Press the reload button
    

Actual Results:  Nautilus window is closed, and error messages disappear too
fast to read their contents.

Expected Results:  Nautilus should not close the window, and (for instance)
should keep moving up in the filesystem tree until finding something it can display.
