More protection agains bugs in backend API


My mail is related to this bug :

I find it a bit pity that a "simple malloc bug" make nautilus completly freeze/crash. Won't it be possible to protect it against that (timeout, error code return)

I'm aware that the best would be to have bugs nowhere :-) but in this particuliar case, it would have been painless to show Mime-type = unknow instead of having nautilus unusable.

Anyway, I am not a developper so I don't realize the sum of work (or even the feasability) it would demand.
I just wanted to submit the idea.

Cordialement / Cheers.
