Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

Installed packages:
- nautilus version 1:2.25.92-0ubuntu1
- nautilus-data version 1:2.25.92-0ubuntu1
- nautilus-share version 0.7.2-0ubuntu7
- libnautilus-extension1 version 1:2.25.92-0ubuntu1

When opening a session, I got a lot of "Starting File Manager".
I tried to activate/deactivate the option so that nautilus show the desktop.
No success.

By desacting the auto-restart, I can open a session.
when I try to run nautilus, I got a stack trace.

You can mark this bug as duplicated if you want to, but I do not think it is a duplicate.

As I explicitly wrote in the subject, this bus happens, even if nautilus shows the desktop.

In Bug #325973, it is about:
"When "show_desktop" is disabled..."

I got a beautiful patch by commenting out a faulting g_free()... ;)
Now nautilus is starting without crash.

It is not a real patch (I do not have enough knowledge for it), but it could help to find the real cause.
The patch was build against the source package brasero-2.25.92.
