Nautilus has suddenly started to copy instead of move some files on the same partition. This is completely random and even though I am dragging and dropping files one by one from one folder to another on the partition, it copies some and moves others unpredictably. This is extremely undesirable behavior.

Also Nautilus no longer scrolls quickly when I hold the page up/page down buttons. Instead it scrolls up or down abnormally and extremely slowly.

Also, Nautilus has completely locked up when I have tried to rename several files with legal filenames just now.

And more, Nautilus is showing the dotted line outlines of icons that are not there in some places.

None of these things have ever happened before right now and I am concerned for the integrity of my system. Something is horribly wrong.

I have booted the machine but that did not make the strange behaviour go away. What else can I do or what could suddenly be causing this? My system is 16.04, up to date.
