Hmm, this isn't true for Galeon, you get a new blank window (or whatever
you set as preference). But then again, Galeon doesn't put this into the
context menu either. 
I guess the most important question simply is, what should be the
prefered/common way to work with Nautilus and how can this be done most
efficiently? Does anyone even has an answer to this yet? :)
