Recently installed mint8 on my acer travelmate 3210 instead of winxp. (i had no issues on winxp with network perf. or file copying)
Trying to copy files (several dirs overall about 40GB, movies, mp3z, pics, etc) with drag and drop in nautilus from my home PC (winxp sp3) by gvfsd-smb... small dirs and files (containing about 4GB) are copied just fine, but when trying to copy large dirs (about 20GB) it just stucks and nautilus experiencing memory leak (starting to consume all avail RAM and CPU usage is 100%)
also file copy dialog is not appearing, it shows some crappy small icon instead. see attached screens
Steps to reproduce:
try to copy by drag and drop directory size of 20GB+ from remote windows password protected smb share.
first screen dropped large dir about 20GB of data to my mint's docs folder, notice the CPU and MEMORY usage gpaphs, also note red maked icon.
second screen ended nautilus with task manager notice the CPU and MEMORY usage gpaphs reduction.
third screen shows that krusader copied those dirs just file.
Hope to solve it some how.
