           Summary: Properties window and desktop icon for large files
                    disappears when attempting to view the files properties
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: nautilus
        AssignedTo: seb128 at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: glen at lincor.com
         QAContact: desktop-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com


I have some server backups scp'd to my ~/Desktop directory on a nightly basis.
When I right-click on one of these approx 4GB files, and select the Properties
action from the context menu I run into a problem. The 
Property window appears but closes before it's populated any of the fields. The
icon for the file in question also disappears. I have to CTRL-r the desktop to
refresh it and the icon appears again.

I have also seen Nautilus crash and restart, but have found it very hard to
reproduce.

Other smaller files don't seem to exhibit this problem, so I'm guessing it's to
do with the file sizes.
