Bug Description

I've recently upgraded from 18.10 to 19.04.
When I right-click on any folder the context menu has extra padding on the bottom edge, below the 'properties' item. Performing the same action on files doesn't produce the problem.
Strangely, while reporting this bug the noted (and recorded) behaviour doesn't occur, when minutes before reporting process began the observed behaviour was still observed following a cold boot (I witnessed and recorded the behaviour last night, and this morning).
Attached is a recording of the behaviour.

I've inferred that the reporting process itself possibly interferes with the misbehaviour. After submitting this report (before the terminal session was closed, however) (began through a terminal session and not the Alt-F2 launcher, using ubuntu-bug [PID of nautilus]) the reported behaviour is present again. The behaviour is identical to that recorded in the attached webm.
To confirm this interference I am beginning a second report, which won't be submitted. Using the Alt-F2 method to begin the reporting process doesn't interfere with the misbehaviour; beginning the process again through a terminal session did not reproduce the interference.
