Description Christian Stadelmann 2015-11-17 20:39:59 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. open nautilus
2. activate "Other locations"
3. in "Enter server address" (bottom edge) insert a sftp URL to any server that will take a long time to response or let your connection time out. E.g.: s
4. press "Connect"
5. press "Abort"

What should happen:
Connection should be aborted freeing resources and UI. It should work as if you were running ssh on terminal and pressed Ctrl+C.

What happens:
Nautilus/gvfs/whatever still tries to connect and doesn't abort. The "Connect to server" feature of nautilus is rendered unusable until connection fails e.g. by timeout. I checked with ssh on terminal: Nautilus seems to be busy for the same duration that ssh will take before returning when trying the same login on the same server.

Thanks for the bug report!

Good news, this bug was fixed in the meantime in a duplicate report.
