Package: gvfs-backends
Version: 1.12.3-2
Severity: important

Control: affects -1 nautilus

Dear Maintainer,

using Nautilus to copy large movie files, for example bigger than 200 MB, from a Canon PowerShot SX40 HS, it fails with an unknown error. (Unfortunately I was not able to find any error messages.) After that the camera LED keeps blinking – like during file transfer – although no files should be transferred anymore. This is even the case when closing Nautilus. So I guess the connection is not closed properly.

Using Gtkam everything works. So it seems to be a GVFS problem. Looking at the upstream commit history, I see some mutex/locking commits. Though I do not know if those would solve this issue.

            gphoto2: make sure to not call g_mutex_clear twice, causing a crash

I reported this issue to the upstream bug tracker GNOME Bugzilla as #690819 [1].
