nautilus (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This odd behavior started immediately after upgrading to Ubuntu 14.04

I'll do a step-by-step to clarify:

Open Nautilus from Launcher
Browse to any folder on local hard drive
Minimize Nautilus
Click on Nautilus on the Launcher again, and it returns to where I was.. All is well.

Open Nautilus from Launcher
Browser to external usb hard drive (I have a WD "MyBook" 500GB)
Minimize Nautilus
Click on Nautilus on the Launcher Again - It opens a new window to the Home folder
If I click on Nautilus again, it then opens the miniturized view of all open Nautilus windows, and then I can pick my exteral hard drive window.

Same results from a 7GB thumb drive
It works correctly while browsing a second internal hard drive
