The message that is printed when nautilus closes unexpectedly indicates that more information could be collected when a breakpoint in gdk_x_error is set. This unfortunately locks up my system as soon as the breakpoint is hit. The mouse was still moving but clicking on anything was no longer possible. The keyboard also did not work as expected so that i could not get at the shell with gdb running...

Fortunately killing gdb after logging in with ssh worked and the system recovered. With a second try, running "gdb nautilus" from the ssh connection i was able to collect a traceback. Looking at it contents it crashes after "grab_dnd_keys" which might explain why the system can not be controlled with the mouse and keyboard with the breakpoint set.
