Bug#320800: nautilus: creating new folder on FTP vfs fails to rename "untitled folder"

Package: nautilus
Version: 2.10.1-3
Severity: normal

When creating a folder, Nautilus creates "untitled folder", which it
renames as soon as the user has input a name. However, not all FTP
servers that allow creating directories also allow removing or moving
these directories.

When using nautilus' FTP vfs to create a folder on such a FTP server, it
leaves a directory named "untitled folder" on the FTP server, and throws
the following error:

  The item could not be renamed.

  There is no "untitled folder" in this folder. Perhaps it was just
  moved or deleted?

This problem would not exist if Nautilus wouldn't actually create the
folder until the user has input its name.
