Dunno why that would make it crash ... the crash just sounds like a bug.

Note that the parent_physical_uri does actually have to be a uri, not a
path, i.e. file:///home/... etc.

If it can't find the parent location, then it wouldn't be able to know
where to create the dir.  Maybe strace or something could show up
something (particularly since it says its working).

Hrm, you might need to use the ShellComponent interface/object type
instead, not the Storage one ... dunno ... Maybe Ettore will pop on the
list and help, I dont think anybody else understands any of the
interfaces ...

Cool, though from your other post it sounds a little clumsy.  If only
bonobo(and ui) was also ported ... and the evo api's were usable outside
of evo (or inside :)
