Bug description:

   * Prevents a user from using sudo or gksudo to view or change the
  owner properties of folder not owned by root. In this case clamav

   * This also fixes the following upstream bug report which has not
  been reported on launchpad:

   * The debdiff above applies a fix from upstream gnome git:
  but has been fixed in 3.14.2 of nautilus and is not present in vivid

  [Test Case]

  * Install gksu and clamav (sudo apt-get install gksu clamav)
  * Run gksudo nautilus from the terminal
  * Navigate to /var/lib and right-click on the folder clamav and click on Properties
  * Nautilus crashes with a segfault in _IO_vfprintf_internal

  [Regression Potential]
  * Low, this patch just fixes incorrect handling of the owner field, it should not introduce any issues and has been well tested in 3.14.


  This constantly happens when trying to look at the properties of a
  file after running gksudo nautilus.
