Save File Dialog won't revert to a sane directory when last used directory is not mounted
Last modified: 2018-05-02 14:30:27 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.
This, if it's not obsolete, is a file chooser bug, not a nautilus one.
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.
