Can't reproduce this in Oneiric at the moment because https://bugs.launchpad.net/nautilus/+bug/804330 occurs when running 'gksudo nautilus' from the terminal.

Thanks Brendan. Odd, but I don't experience Bug #804330.
Running nautilus a second time again via gksudo only outputs those few lines. But still takes a long time until the wheel stops spinning.

comment from upstream:

"You shouldn't run nautilus as root. Whats probably happening here is that not
only is nautilus getting started, but also a session bus for root, and diverse
session services, etc etc." not a bug.

I don't think that the response is appropriate. We specifically have reasons to sometimes run certain GUI programs as root, such as Nautilus and gedit.
