Duplicate phone entries in Nautilus's Places section
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Hey, there.

So, I'm getting duplicate listings in my Nautilus places section for my phone - it seems like each time the phone is disconnected and reconnected, it creates a new entry in the menu. If it matters, my phone is set to be tethered to my computer to provide an internet connection. The phone is a Moto X 2014 (2nd gen).

Here's what it looks like:

From what I recall, the problem started soon after I uninstalled LibreOffice. I don't see how there can be any connection, nevertheless I just wanted to put this out there.

After few latest updates, my smartphone (Lenovo Vibe Shot) remains present in Nautilus left bar even after I disconnect it.

According to https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/nautilus/issues/154 it is an issue with gvfs that will be resolved in a point release. Going to upgrade us to that when it's available.

Okay so, I had a think on this some more, and I'm just going to opt to land a bunch of patches in the gnome-3-26 branch and just drop them when gvfs does a new release, because frankly there's no telling when that'll actually be and they don't seem to be in a rush to do so.
