Hi Gareth,

UI/GtkBuilder files were never really meant to be hand edited by users;
Nautilus expects to fetch some widgets from there and crashes or error
conditions might happen if the expected data is not found.
Having said that, Nautilus 3.4 started using GResource [1], so all that
runtime data is now compiled into a binary bundle, which is linked into
the executable.

If you want to build a custom Nautilus with some modifications in such
data, I recommend you treat the operation in the same way you would
treat a patch to the source code, i.e. you should maintain a patched
package build or something similar.
