[Bug 410288] Re: Nautilus does not handle FTP timeouts well


See the bottom of the log: "Attempt to unlock mutex that was not locked"

The problem is that glib 2.42, used in Ubuntu 14.10 became more strict
about lock checking, and you're using a version of gvfs from a older
version of GNOME which had a locking bug. See this commit

Unfortunately, mixing and matching bits from different GNOME releases
can cause problems...

For a solution, you could ask the Ubuntu maintainers to add that patch.

You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop

  Nautilus does not handle FTP timeouts well

Status in GVFS:
  Fix Released
Status in Nautilus:
Status in gvfs package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gvfs

  I connected to a FTP server via gvfs in Nautilus. After some time the
  FTP connection is closed automatically, as I observed with wireshark
  (421 No transfer timeout (300 seconds): closing control connection).

  After that, everytime I open a folder on the FTP server I get only an
  "unexpected end of stream" error. To access the FTP server again I
  have to disconnect and then connect again. Nautilus does not seem to
  know that the connection closed.

  A better behaviour IMHO would be to try and reconnect to the FTP
