I think I didn't mean --no-default-window, sorry.

There are two problems:

 - if you do not normally run Nautilus, but run it from Programs menu,
   it should not manage the desktop; presumably you just wanted a file
   window. But "manage desktop" should really be in the preferences,
   so you can change whether it manages the desktop.

 - if you are in KDE, you see all the GNOME menus. Running Nautilus 
   hoses you badly (KDE decides it's a fullscreen presentation program 
   and covers up the KDE panel).

Also, we need to hack gnome-libs to add --no-desktop to the usage of
Nautilus as a help browser, in case you choose help for a GNOME app
from KDE.
