Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 15:22:45 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 2 rktspm 2016-12-11 00:50:12 UTC
This bug is still present in Fedora 25.
When I try do drag-n-drop a file from file-roller into nautilus, both applications become frozen.


Comment 3 Viliam Križan 2016-12-19 19:57:19 UTC
I am reproducing this also in F25. Not sure if this is a problem or Wayland or file-roller wayland integration.

Comment 4 Manuel Bejarano 2017-03-15 18:02:57 UTC
I can confirm that this bug is present when using Wayland. Drag-n-drop works as expected when using Xorg though.


Comment 5 Gabriele 2017-07-03 20:58:17 UTC
The bug is still here in Fedora 25 with Wayland. In Fedora 24 with Xorg there isn't any issue.
