I have a variation on this.  I put a shell script in
.gnome2/nautilus-scripts and it is there and I can use it.

I go to the scripts menu after right-clicking and select open scripts
menu.  It give me the instructional message and opens the scripts
folder.  I associate the script with gvim so I can edit it.  I open it
in gvim.  Now the script menu won't show up after right clicking.  

I killed off gvim and closed all the scripts folders.  The scripts
menu still doesn't appear.

I went to files and programs and removed association of gvim to the
shell script.  Now the scripts menu is back.
