           Summary: Nautilus doesn't create shortcut when dropping a URL in
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: nautilus
        AssignedTo: seb128 at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: cpinto at yimports.com

I wanted to save a URL to disk and after selecting, dragging (from Firefox's
address bar) and dropping the URL into a Nautilus window I get the following
error message:

Error creating new document.
Error "Not on the same filesystem" creating new document.

I'm attaching a screenshot with the message.

One thing is weird though, if I select the "blank page" on the left side of the
URL address and drop it on Nautilus it creates the shortcut correctly without
any problem.
