I can verify this, too. I'm using nautilus 2.1.3 and XFree86 4.2.1.
However in my case it's not dog-slow, but definitly to slow. Downgrading
my NVidia drivers to 2960 (the version I used before) helped, now
everything is just fine again. It seems to me that this is a NVidia
issue (since it's worked fine with previous versions of the driver), so
I'm cc:-ing this to linux-bugs nvidia com
