Public bug reported:
Open a remote folder via SSH with nautilus.
Open another remote folder.
Drag and drop a file from one remote folder to the other.
Get a "generic error". Screenshot to be attached.
Cut and pasting the file produced the same error. I was able to move it
successfully by copy and pasting and then deleting it from the original
The bug only occurs with certain combinations of folders. For example, I
can drag-drop fine between
username at student.ssh.inf.ed.ac.uk/home/username and
username at student.ssh.inf.ed.ac.uk/home/username /subfolder or vice
versa, but the error occurs when drag-dropping between for example
username at student.ssh.inf.ed.ac.uk/home/username /subfolder and
username at student.ssh.inf.ed.ac.uk/public/homepages/username/
I think the two folders in the last example may be on different
partitions in the remote account.
** Affects: nautilus (Ubuntu)
