Its not obvious that this is a bug, but rather a question of different
behaviours and what you're used to. Both MacOS and Unix has always had
the behaviour that nautilus currently has (try doing the same operation
you did in the shell). Of course, it does give problems for people who
are used to the way windows does this. Unfortunately a misunderstanding
about this behaviour can cause loss of data, so its a bit dangerous.

Maybe we should switch to the window behaviour?
