Comment 6 for bug 982626

FYI Daniel, my workaround for this (happens almost every time I boot up), is to open a folder on the desktop (so nautilus opens a window), then to run a script from the desktop with unity --replace, then unity starts fine. Without the nautilus window open, no amount of restarting unity seems to fix it. Quite odd.

Thanks for all of your hard work on Compiz/Unity!
