  it's not *one* issue, it's a a very complex problem, communications
between 4 big pieces of code (kernel, gamin, gnome-vfs, nautilus and
potentially the way OpenOffice writes files) totalling a very impressive
number of lines of code.
 - We welcome patches.
 - We welcome automated regression tools you may provide to check dynamically
   that such behaviour is not broken.

What was reported in December was of course fixed in subsequent releases,
same symptoms probably very different reason, assuming we didn't track it.
Now where is your bugzilla report ?
