Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Using unity 3.2.0 on natty, nautilus fails to start there on a missing symbol issue due to version mismatches from the GNOME3 ppa, while the issue is a bug on nautilus it would be nice if the launcher would tell the user that the application is failing to start in some way

Can we determine with some accuracy that the application crashed on
startup? If so, we could design an appropriate experience for this case.
