Bug Description

virtual-box Ubuntu 11.10

  Installed: 1:3.2.0-0ubuntu5
  Candidate: 1:3.2.0-0ubuntu5
  Version table:
 *** 1:3.2.0-0ubuntu5 0
        500 http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ oneiric/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Expected: The word "Computer" should neither be clickable using mouse nor should it be highlighted using TAB.

What happens: Just after opening the nautilus, as expected one can not click on the word "Computer", but using TAB you can highlight the word "Computer" in nautilus. After the word "Computer" is highlighted press Enter, the window as well as data on the desktop disappear. The data on the desktop reappears after opening nautilus again and clicking on a link.

Please look the attached image where I have marked by a red circle the the highlighted option by TAB, Press Enter there to produce the bug.

Note: This happens only when the nautilus is just started. You cannot highlight "Computer" after you have clicked on other directories/links in the nautilus.

Thank you for your bug report, that's quite a corner case and should be sent to GNOME by somebody having the issue, I can't get it to happen there, using tab it's not clear where the focus goes but in the sidebar it seems to select the first line and not the category

why changing it back to new without comment? figuring the description changes is non trivial, could you explain how you trigger the bug in a comment rather, i.e the keys you press and how many times?
