GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 758243
[Network] cannot abort connecting to a server
Last modified: 2017-08-28 22:22:45 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.: sftp://firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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.
This issue also affects connecting to a ftps:// server. Changing title to reflect general problem.
Thanks for the bug report!
Good news, this bug was fixed in the meantime in a duplicate report.
