           Summary: copying files from a cd fails for subdirectories
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: nautilus
        AssignedTo: seb128 at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: ubuntu at jackwasey.com

I have a cd full of oggs. The path names are longish but not excessively, and
include spaces. I can navigate the CD and see folders and files ok.

However, When I copy the files to my home directory, but it turns some
sub-folders into 0 byte files. I first did this by just copy and pasting the
files between nautilus windows. cp -r seems to work okay. when i view the files
on the cd, they have read and execute permissions for u,g,a and are owned by
root, group root.

This led to what may be another bug: the resulting 0 byte file disappeared from
the nautilus view when I right clicked on it. Could this be because it is
supposed to be a directory?

Why should copy and paste in nautilus be different from cp -r? does it do cp -a
then not have permission to create the contents of folders?
