I was on 5.1 for a while; and recently did a fresh install to 5.1.3. Since then, when I go to Files application's location bar and do ~/somedir, it says "Unable to mount folder - could not connect to the server for this folder." Problem seems to be that it is actually prefixing a "/" effectively making the location "/~/somedir". Hadn't experienced this before at all. I also did all updates and upgrades using apt. Issue persists.
Anyone has seen this, or has a solution? I am pretty sure this wasn't the case before since ~/ is a integral part of my workflow.
