I'm not sure what to say. It sounds like something is very broken about
your instalation. Given this is not nautilus-speciffic, you should
probably talk to the general gnome-list.

The fact that you are having drastic instability problems with so many
gtk-related applications is what makes me think this is an installation
problem rather than a simple bug.

Sory I can't be of more help. If you email gnome-list gnome org, they
might be able to help you better.
