Subject: nautilus: Copy/Paste makes program unusable (100% CPU load, not responding)
Package: nautilus
Version: 2.10.1-5
Severity: important

*** Please type your report below this line ***
I can reproduce this problem, but I do not know what to look for. I
select 8 pictures from a directory (total size is about 10M), use 
copy (Ctrl+C). I open another window on the target directory, and use 
paste. At that time, the CPU load grows till 98%. Waiting 5 minutes 
does not change the situation. 
The source and target directory are not located on the same partition of
the disk. I noticed that the copy/paste works if I create a link to the
target directory on my Desktop (still another partition, though). Opening 
this window and pasting into it works perfectly. 

It belongs to the main functionality for a file manager to move files
around, hence the severity. I can provide you with more information
