The problem is that even if the files are displayed in another view, we
can't be sure that the other view knows about the most recent changes.
When FAM is installed, we are notified when there are changes, so there
is no need check if there are changes until we are told by FAM that
there really have been changes....

As Darin mentioned before, when the user opens a new window they expect
to see NEW contents and there are only 3 ways for this to happen 1) Use
FAM 2) Have Nautilus magically press "Reload" for the user 3) Make the
user press "Reload".  Clearly 1) is optimal, 2) works but is slower, and
3) is just plain broken...

This really shouldn't be a big deal though, FAM is our friend. =)
