Public bug reported:

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

Ubuntu Dapper 3, HP NC4200

When trying to open the folder / of a windows ntfs partition I get an error msg. I need to be root to be able to open the folder. 
But nautilus does not ask me for a root password, when Im trying to open the folder.

So, the bug is that nautilus do not ask for a passwd, it just gives an
err. msg.
