Bug Description

In almost freshly installed Ubuntu 13.10 nothing happens if "Show in folder" clicked for downloads, both clicking bottom panel dropdown menu or clicking link on chrome://downloads/.

Related: #606544, but it is old and that report says that opening files does not work too. Opening files works for me, only "show in folder" does not work.

Also:

Please choose a default application for files of type inode/directory

 1) Files (nautilus-folder-handler)
 2) Files (nautilus)
 3) Disk Usage Analyzer (baobab)
 4) Other...

use application #

Choosing "1" works.
