           Summary: Nautilus crashes when checking properties on large file
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: nautilus
        AssignedTo: seb128 at ubuntu.com

Nautilus crashes when checking properties on large file, In this case a DVD iso
image of the SuSE Linux Professional Distribution. Can duplicate it
consistently.This was checked on a stock Ubuntu Hoary 5.0.4 install as well to
rule out anything from backports or uni/multi verse.

Download a large file, in this case > 4 GB to home folder.
Open home folder in Nautilus (Places - Home Folder)
Right click on the file - Select properties

Nautilus window disappears (crash)

Another oddity is that the large file that was selected will now disappear when
nautilus window reopens. This may give the appearance that the file was somehow
deleted as all other files show up. I have to reload the window to see it again.
