  [SRU] Copy, paste stops working randomly in Ubuntu 14.04 nautilus

Status in Nautilus:
  Fix Released
Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:

Status in nautilus source package in Trusty:

Bug description:
  The title says it.

  Since upgrade to 14.04, copy / cut / paste of files among various
  folders I have write rights on does not work most of the times.

  Using the terminal to copy / move does work normally.

    Installed: 1:3.10.1-0ubuntu9.1
    Candidate: 1:3.10.1-0ubuntu9.1
    Version table:
   *** 1:3.10.1-0ubuntu9.1 0
          500 http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates/main i386 Packages
          100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
       1:3.10.1-0ubuntu8 0

  [Test Case]

  1. Open a Nautilus window and switch to List view
  2. Go to location with write permission
  3. Select a file and try to rename.
  4. When prompted to rename (filename becomes a text entry), open new tab.
  5. Select a file, try to copy and paste. You will see that file is not copied and pasted.
  6. Go back to original tab. If the file that was selected in step 3 is still selected, unselect it.
  7. Try to copy and paste. It should work.
  8. Try to rename again, and open new tab.
  9. Close old tab, and try to copy and paste. It won't work, and there is no way to restore, except opening a new window.
