Shrinking windows - each new window is smaller than the previous one

Bug Description

Each time I open a nautilus window, the window is smaller than the previous window I opened. The windows shrink only in the vertical dimension. The first window might be 400px high. The next window might be 380px high. The next one is 360px high. And so on.

To reproduce:
1) Open a window in nautilus. Observe the size.
2) Close the window
3) Open a new window

Expected results:
The window from step 3 is the same size as the one in step 1

Actual results:
The window from step 3 is not as tall as the one in step 1

This is 100% reproducible on my system. It's a recent regression in 14.04. I suspect it's related to recent changes to give the option of in-window menus for this app (I have not enabled the in-window menus, I am still using global menus).
