Could not aquire bzr lock even after unlocking

Bug Description

bzr seems to stay locked excessively in Ground Control.

Simply fetching code and making a new local branch ends with the lock still in place. I then click the unlock tool and hit update and have it fail with a lock error.

Some further investigation shows that nautilus is the locking process, and that this persists within a terminal attempting bzr break-lock even after closing the window.

Scott, you can kill nautilus or restart it using `nautilus --quit` on the command line. Does this help?

Yes, killall nautilus allowed me to release the bzr lock (manually on the terminal)

My nautilus windows were all closed before I did that, but the process was still alive and locking.
