Bug Description

This bug is tested with clean installation of Ubuntu 11.10 x86 and also 64bit. Without any additional software, no additional GFX drivers, clean install with added Opera browser.

After using of Opera browser for 10-30 minutes, and after closing Opera, Nautilus icons, desktop icons and desktop font colors are changed. Nautilus get gray theme, it seems like all icons are gray and all icons looks the same. As empty paper gray icon.
Also toolbar of Nautilus get changed to gray.

This happens unexpectedly and unpredictably. One thing is certain that after using Opera for some time and turning off the Opera this will definitely happen. I also try to not use Opera software for whole day and then this problem never occur.

Adter that I also install PCManFM. This app stay unchanged, only Nautilus change theme.

This bug was also confirmed in one forum by other user, also in combination with latest Ubuntu 11.10 and latest Opera browser.

Thank you.

This happened to me as well, however I do not have Opera installed to my computer instead I have Firefox and Chromium. Attached is a screenshot of Nautilus immediately after this issue occurred.
