Public bug reported:

I can connect to my mobile via bluetooth, I can “browse files” in
nautilus, I can copy files to the phone and delete files from the phone.
But when I try to copy a file from the phone to my computer, I get an
error dialog:

Error while copying “FileXY”.
There was an error copying the file into /home/frederik/Desktop.
