  * debian/patches/04_additional_marge_for_unity.patch:
    - lower the margin to a more acceptable value
    - only add the margin when unity is loading. Detecting it dynamically if
      it's unloaded/reloaded (LP: #701743)

Something wrong with the update nautilus (1:
At least in 64-bit system with gnome-classic nautilus crashes all the time, mostly when moving mouse on the window.
Downgrading to the version 1: solves the issue completely.

While i don't see the nautilus crash here (though don't discount ) the 04 patch is causing unity to crash on the Desktop login

This is a 1 time deal, the next login to uniy will fail.

Seen on both a slightly older and a new as of Tues. (01/11 .iso) installs
