This is still a problem in 9.04 Jaunty Beta.

This failure of Nautilus to start makes it difficult to configure 9.04
to run well in a VMware virtual machine, since the VMware Tools CDROM ISO
image can't be attached without causing a Nautilus crash loop that fills
the task bar. You have to SIGSTOP Nautilus, mount the CDROM ISO file
manually, install VMware tools, unmount the ISO, then SIGCONT Nautilus.
