  • This "feature" has already been reported to the nautilus team (see gnome-bugs #593405) and marked NOTABUG, however its triaged on Ubuntu so you might see this fixed in Oneiric.


    How to fix it:

    I made a patch that reverts the upstream commit that added this feature. You'll need a bit of console work to apply it:

    1. mkdir gvfs; cd gvfs
    2. sudo apt-get build-dep gvfs
    3. apt-get source gvfs
    4. wget https://launchpadlibrarian.net/77889392/100_remove_redundant_labels2.patch
    5. cd gvfs-*/; quilt import ../100_remove_redundant_labels2.patch
    6. dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -rfakeroot
    7. sudo dpkg -i ../*.deb
    8. Restart your computer

    After I applied the patch
