    I think I found one. I cannot easily rename files (on my other - 'external' drive). When I try to rename a file, the name goes 'blank' (white) and I cannot see anything that I type. Wtheck?

    Is this a well known bug? The other thing that seems to happen is that another file adjacent to it gets renamed instead. This is really annoying. I had to boot up another OS to rename the files.

    Edit: P.S. It only happens with my external drive. I don't have this problem with other distros I've used meaning this is a new problem. But, no matter what I did, the same issue occurs. If I try renaming a file in my home directory or some place on the OS drive, it works as it should. I have no idea what to even google if this is a bug in trusty. Or maybe it's a new bug? It's definitely a bug - it reoccurs each time.
    Btw, what are your operations exactly? My exact motions are:
    1) right click on file folder and click 'rename...' - immediately, the file name disappears.
    2) I can type but no output of text shows up (until I type the 'Enter' key or click the left button of the mouse) - i.e. it's just a blank space there. Whatever I typed is the new file name. Really annoying and not really usable. Seems like an obvious bug.

    If I don't type anything and click somewhere else in the 'white space' of the window, then the current file name displays.

    This only happens with my 'external drive' so far. I have tried renaming folders in my Home directory and it works as it should.

    I have no idea what to google or what to search in launchpad bugs. :-/
