Nautilus crashes in gnome-vfs2 at startup

Description of problem:
At GUI startup, the taskbar appears at the bottom, but the desktop
stays black and a 'The Application "nautilus" has quit unexpectedly.'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type startx at command line
Actual Results: Error dialog appears.
Expected Results: Desktop should start up.
The bug appears to be heap corruption that somehow related to
/etc/fstab. I have a USB flash card reader that I removed to see if
it was the cause. Nautilus started successfully after this. I
discovered that the contents of fstab were causing it. If I remove
the entries related to the flash reader from fstab (with the reader
still attatched) it works. Or if I replace the /dev/fd0 line with
one of the flash reader lines it works.
I tried reinstalling FC2 test 3, and it still occurs. The stack trace
is different, but it's still crashing in a "free" function.

Just a note to say that this still happens in FC2 Final.
