Description rob_abram 2007-12-19 15:32:12 UTC
I did this using Evolution, I saved a file over a SMB share and the next time I saved a file, the save dialog I didn't want to connect to the share.  The dialog would not give up on trying to connect the share.  I had to click cancel many times and try clicking on a local directory before the dialog allowed me to save a file to the local disk.  

Would be nice if the Save dialog would revert to a sane directory with a minimum of fuss when the last directory is not mounted and I don't want or can't mount it.

-> GtkFileChooser

This, if it's not obsolete, is a file chooser bug, not a nautilus one.
Comment 2 Federico Mena Quintero 2011-01-03 20:46:26 UTC
Was the file chooser just "stuck" while it was trying to read the share?  If I add a bookmark like


and I click on it in the file chooser's shortcuts pane, it will eventually come up with a "no route to host" error dialog.  But in the meantime, I can click on another folder in the shortcuts pane just fine.
