Details

Updated gnome-vfs2 packages that fix a regression from Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.4 are now available.

GNOME VFS is the GNOME virtual file system. It is the foundation of the
Nautilus file manager. It provides a modular architecture and ships with
several modules that implement support for file systems, http, ftp, and
others. It provides a URI-based API, backend supporting asynchronous file
operations, a MIME type manipulation library, and other features.

This update addresses the following regression from Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.4:

* when extracted from the Uniform Resource Identifier, gnome-vfs returned
escaped file paths. If the path, as stored in the URI, contained non-ASCII
characters or some ASCII characters which are parsed as something other
than file path (eg spaces), the escaped path was inaccurate and could lead
gnome-vfs to error.

For example, if an unescaped path contained a space -- eg /home/user/work
folder/letter.odt -- trying to move "letter.odt" to the Trash using
Nautilus resulted in an alert box presenting as follows:

Error "Not on the same file system" while deleting

Clicking the default "Retry" button did not result in the file being moved
to the Trash. The practical consequence: this bug meant files with paths
that included spaces could not be deleted using Nautilus.

With this update, gnome-vfs properly properly unescapes paths when the path
is required for a system call. The paths are, consequently, parsed properly
and errors such as the example above no longer occur. (BZ#589874)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
