    Nautilus always opens an extra directory

    When I open a directory from the Places menu on the Gnome panel, two Nautilus windows open up. One is the location I asked for. The other is always "/media/Data/ZZZMaint/PC/R stats pkg". I think it may be to do with the fact that some time earlier I had created a launcher in the Main Menu - called "R documentation"', with command "nautilus --no-desktop '/media/Data/ZZZMaint/PC/R stats pkg' " (the idea was to have a menu item that opened up a folder containing a set of documents I refer to). I have since disabled that menu item but the problem remains.

    I would very much like to stop Nautilus opening this extra window.

    I've tried looking through gconf-editor but haven't seen anything that looks relevant.

    The extra window doesn't get opened when I run Nautilus from other places, but it always happens when Nautilus is opened from the Places Menu, regardless of whether I'm opening a drive or a bookmark.


    System is Karmic Koala running Gnome.

    Thanks for any help.

    OK. I found a fix. I did the commands set out in the following link to re-set Gnome, and the problem disappeared.
