Public bug reported:

Affects: nautilus (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

Go to the 'Computer' Link or 'My Computer' Area where the active devices
and the mounted volumes can be found. On secondary click a menu
including the options "Rename... and Make Link" show up.

However on trying to rename any volume it gives the following error:
 -- The item could not be renamed. -- 

and trying to Make a Link to the volume its gives the following error:
 -- Error "Operation not permitted" while creating a link to "computer://...lume.drive" -- 
plus it gives the options to Cancel or Retry. Retry seemingly puts you in a never ending cycle
