file copy in nautilus over gvfs-smb memory leak[launchpad]

Postby MarvinFS » Wed Dec 02, 2009 3:15 pm

Recently installed mint8 on my acer travelmate 3210 instead of winxp. (i had no issues on winxp with network perf. or file copying)

Overview:
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.

Additional materials:
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.

just installed 'gnome-commander' as an alternative, witch works fine.
Alternatively cp -r -v works also

an nautilus fix would be fine too

btw i was just copying 15gb from fat32 to ntfs, same problem with bigger files from fat32 to fat32

I have the same problem on Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty. It happens when I try to copy or delete a large number of files. It didn't happen some time ago.

MarvinFS I have responded on Launchpad
I think this is a mix of bug and support question so I intend to try to find a solution not only to you but some other(s) with the same or a similar problem
This will unfortunately take time
