What is going on with Nautilus? It's not been usable for quite a while

These messages are coming from accessibility support. That's not really
at a usable state with GTK+ 3 at the moment, so I'd suggest doing:
gconftool-2 -s -t bool /desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility false
then log out and log back in.

There also seem to be problems with nautilus from GTK+ ABI changes - I
see various warnings along the lines of:
(nautilus:27082): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: specified class size for type
`EvPropertiesView' is smaller than the parent type's `GtkVBox' class
These indicate a definite need for rebuild, so I'll kick one off now,
and maybe things will be better after that finishes. It's certainly not
worth worrying about anything related to Nautilus until it's rebuild.
