Binary package hint: nautilus

The error messages returned by Nautilus (or gnomevfs) over Samba aren't
very meaningful, eg if you are trying to move a file from a Samba share
and the file is read-only, nautilus will copy the file and then tell you
it failed to copy it with details of 'invalid parameter'. In fact it
does copy it, but it can't delete the original, and it would be great if
it could tell you this.

Version info:

ubuntu 8.04 rc
nautilus 1:2.22.2-0ubuntu4
samba/smbclient 3.0.28a-1ubuntu4 
libgnomevfs-2.0  1:2.22.0-2ubuntu1
