Comment 32 for bug 150471

Both of these work-arounds work for me ('Trackerd' & 'kill nautilus').

The Trackerd fix by Luiz above is particularly interesting because when Trackered is not running nautilus appears to be able to pull itself out of whatever spiral it's in. A "nautilus-debug-log.txt" is still generated by nautilus but now it rarely spans more than 1 second. I've attached an example log from one of my users. The generated log files sometimes also include extra information.
