This wasn't really what I meant. I changed it to how i think it should
be and commited.

I also added code to handle runtime changes of this.

I actually changed this to have the pointer. I agree that its a bit
weird with the naming, but its useful to be able to get to the parent
sometimes. I mean, the home button has a different name than the
filename too.

Did you file this bug in bugzilla, so the gtk+ version can be fixed?

Other fixes I did:

* added gconf schema entry for the prefs
* added file to
* added header file #ifdef protection
* fixed leaks in:
path_bar->desktop_path = gnome_vfs_get_uri_from_local_path (nautilus_get_desktop_directory ());
* finalize can be called multiple, you must NULL out the freed pointer
* is_file_path_mounted_volume leaked the rest of the volumes in the list
if there was a match
