Turned out to be a bit of a red-herring.... I was actually testing with
LD_LIBRARY_PATH including a fresh-from-git copy of GTK+.

Another potential problem is modules in:


That are linking against gtk2 - that will result in gtk2 and gtk3 in the
same process, which will do bad things. There are certainly some
problems with that in the current Rawhide package set but not sure if
that's causing the problem you are seeing or not. Nautilus seem to work
fairly well for me with the rebuild and the right LD_LIBRARY_PATH and
most of the offending modules removed.

(We'll work on rebuilds and checks in Nautilus to deal with the
extensions linking against gtk2)
