3.  Only one view of a folder can be open at a time.  Thus, if you open 
    your home directory twice, you won't get two nautilus windows, 
    you'll get a nautilus window at first and the second time the 
    nautilus window will raise to the top.  For most folder icons, 
    nautilus will "grey out" folders that are already opened.
