Description of problem:
When using the tree view in nautilus with the show files option enabled,
clicking on a known file type like a text file, displays the text file in the
main window for a second and the main window is refreshed back to the icon view
of the directory. Is this a bug or a feature? I would expect clicking on
anything in the tree view would be the same as clicking on the icon of the same
file in the main window.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. disable show only folders in the nautilus preference
2. enable the side pane and tree view
3. click on a txt, jpg, or other nautilus displayable file.
Actual Results: The file is displayed in the main window for a second and the
the window is refreshed and the icon view of the selected directory is displayed.
Expected Results: The clicked file is displayed.

Clicking on a non folder item in fc4t3 nautilus treeview pops an error dialog
