It's a one line script... Very easy to do. Look at one of the Nau scripts

Same as above - one small script....

Yeah, that is indeed annoying.

GNOME1.4 was supposed to have that, but it was removed at the last minute 
because of some problem with the implementation...

About the freezes, well, I never had any freezes with the latest Nautilus 
from CVS, or indeed any other GNOME program... Now I'm on a different 
computer, which runs KDE2, and it freezes rather frequently... For example, 
while writing this letter, the KDE2 window manager restarted itself for no 
reason... So KDE2 got where to mature too...
