I have weird problem, Nautualis (I am not sure how u spell that) hides random files, that are visible in Wine Explorer and terminal. I can even see them om Totem Open file menu.

I am using 8.04 64-bit, this is the second time that I noticed this happened with me. Both files were media files downloaded via uTorrent through wine. I download alot of stuff and these 'Ghost files' are rather rare, I can run them without any problem, but I would rather not want to have to look for them.

Any help is appreciated.

I posted this here because I wasn't sure where this would fit.

Do you notice any specific pattern between the files? Do they begin with a dot(.)? Do they end with a tilde (~)?

I tried renameing the files and they are visible once again. Hmm is there a way to fix this or is that it.
