[Bug 528314] Re: Nautilus hangs after smb share is unavailable


If you anybody needs steps to reproduce (I tested on Wi-Fi networks but that does not matter, really):
1) Connect to a samba share on your network
2) Close nautilus
3) Connect to a network where a there is no route to a server with the samba share
4) Open nautilus (hangs for about 2 - 3 minutes)

If you unmount your share nautilus does not hang after a restart.

  Nautilus hangs after smb share is unavailable

Status in gvfs package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: nautilus

  After opening and closing a smb share with nautilus, the gvfsd-smb mount isn't unmounted automatically.
  As soon as the network share is unavailable thereafter, the whole gnome desktop freezes for about 30'  from time to time.
  Until the user logs out or the gfs-mount is unmounted manually (which in case can't be done until the freeze period is over).

  It would be nice if the gvfs-unmount would happen automatically after
  some timeout witout traffic and/or when all network interfaces
  (LAN/WLAN) are down.
