nautilus consistently crashes on an icon removal

Description of problem:
gconftool-2 --set --type=bool /apps/nautilus/desktop/network_visible false
or an equivalent operation with gconf-editor, nautilus crashes with
an attached backtrace (this was generated by bug-buddy after installing
This happens only if the original value was 'true' and we are switching
to 'false'. Subsequent repeats of the command above, or switching to 'true'
no matter which previous state, are uneventful.
A session restarts nautilus automatically and a 'false' value is accepted,
i.e. a corresponding icon does go away from a desktop.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Created attachment 122804 [details]
a backtrace from a nautilus crash
This is fixed upstream and will be in the next nautilus release we import.
Value changes for /apps/nautilus/desktop/network_icon_visible (not
'network_visible') with nautilus-2.13.4-1 do not crash nautilus anymore
and a corresponding icon shows up or disappears as expected.
