[Bug 1131571] Re: Nautilus properties window "Content" number continuously counting


I have several, various machines using Ubuntu at different stages for over two years, and they all have had this problem. If a 'Report System Problem' pop-up occurred there would be more reports, but it loops instead of crashing or outputting an error: typically you eventually click "close" and it quits like nothing happened. 
This loop occurs with large NTFS file systems containing many files ans subdirectories, say 20GB+ and 20,000+ files. 
I can sometimes get around it by accessing the parent directory properties, but that includes "system volume information" and recycling and any other unwanted directories. Right-clicking properties is much simpler than using the command line so I hope this gets fixed.
