I encounter routine segfaults while navigating directories, specifically using the tree view. When nautilus segfaults, the entire file browser window disappears.
During heavy usage (e.g., writing code; several directory branches deep), I will typically see 2-3 segfaults in a single day. Lesser branching tends to reduce the frequency, but it still happens occasionally.
How do I fix? Do I need to report this to any organization (redhat, fedora, gnome?)... if so, how?
It's bugs like these that cause me to think twice about recommending fedora to anyone... if they can't get the basics right, what reason do I have to trust it with anything more complex.
Any help or suggestions (besides the obvious of avoiding tree view) would be much appreciated.
Also, using "LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so.1 nautilus" as per http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=273444
did not fix the issue.
