Use the correct URI syntax: 'file://host/path'. If no host is to be given
(illegal, but see Wart 2), the syntax should be 'file:///path'.
Use \r\n at the end of each line.
Use library routines such as gtk_selection_data_set_uris() to create
correctly formed lists for you. See the File URI Specification
for more details

Not sure if it was a Nautilus bug, seems upstream sugguest we should append
'\r\n' at the end of each line.
But just as you said, the bug exists even in SLE11.

(In reply to Tao Yang from comment #2)
Confirmed on SLED12.

When dragging a file to another application by Drag and Drop, nautilus will
append the URI with "\r\n" and then transfer it to other applications.

It seems this action is not appropriate, so I will submit this issue to
upstream and ask them for the reason.
