Bug Description

Double clicking a folder on desktop opens new instance of a nautilus instead of opening the window in a same instance of nautilus as a new tab.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open a nautilus window by clicking on the launcher icon.
2. Minimize the nautilus window (and click "show desktop" icon in launcher) if required.
3. Double click on any folder on desktop or right click and select "open"

What happens:

1. A new instance (window) of nautilus is opened.
2. There's no obvious way to access the first window again. The only way is ALT+TAB.

What should happen:

If a nautilus window is already open then double clicking on the desktop folder icon should bring up that window and open the folder in a new tab.

system info: ubuntu 14.04 LTS files 3.10.1
