I'm running LMDE / Xfce and Nautilus as my file manger. Nautilus is set not to handle my desktop. When I'm moving files around between tabs or between breadcrumbs or dragging and dropping from the archive manager, as soon as I release the mouse button over the folder Nautilus freezes, with the cursor still on the "hand+ icon". Sometimes after awhile it resumes, but most of the time I found the only way I found to unfreeze it is to press ctrl-alt-f2. Once I go back to my desktop I find that Nautilus dropped the file where ever it wanted in the directory tree, sometimes two or more directories deep. Now for the fun part.... I can't for the life of me recreate it in a controlled manner. It's almost like Nautilus waits patiently until I'm moving important files. Out of boredom and before I wiped my machine, I installed version 3.4.2 from testing and the same issues happen. I just ran Nautilus from the terminal and it wasn't freezing (this time) but I did see this error every time I moved a file around.
Code: Select all

Any suggestions other then use a different file manager? Am I the only one?
