Drag and drop folder causes guest to abort -> fixed in 5.2.20

Reported by: Peter Hull Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 5.0.10 Keywords: drag and drop
Cc: Guest type: all
Host type: all

Description

If I drag and drop a folder containing files from the host's desktop onto the guest's desktop, the guest will abort. I have tried this three times with the same result. Dropping a file works as expected.

Host: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, version 1511 build 10586.11 Guest: Xubuntu 32-bit 15.10 (with 5.0.10 guest additions)

I set up windows to produce a minidump as per the instructions but it seems that no file was created. I can try again if necessary.

Further info:

The example folder I uploaded had four empty files in it. If I put text in these files, VBox doesn't abort but I get a folder with one file, containing three of the files contents all joined together.
