There's no dumb common error I know of that leads to this problem. To help,
I'd need a bit more to go on than this high-level description.

Many folks outside Eazel use eazel-hacking, but I'm not sure you'd like it.
It has a lot of "opinions" about how you set up your system.

My solution to this problem is to work without a file manager, so I have no
"stable" version of Nautilus at all. Given how Nautilus uses CORBA, I think
this is the only practical solution. The two copies of Nautilus are not
going to stay out of each other's way.
