Well...it worked!

Seems like I have to study a little more extensively the nautilus-python API  :-}

However, from the deepness of my noobness, thank you!

Hi Giuseppe,

I'm no python expert, but it looks to me like what you need to pass to
escape() is a string, right? current_directory is probably an object
implementing NautilusFileInfo, so can you try calling get_uri() on it
and pass that in the callback?
