Search for files... from nautilus results in error

Description of problem:
When you right click in nautilus (eg from Desktop) and select Search for
files..., gnome-search-tool starts with an error:
"Error starting file '/home/user/Desktop/'/home/user/Desktop":No such file or
After clicking OK you can do a search
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right click in a folder
2.Select Search for Files....
The error above (with the path from where is was started)
Probably the path passed to gnome-search-tool from nautilus is passed twice or
something like that.
The double-path message is a bug in gnome-search-tool's error dialog.
The actual bug is that nautilus-search-tool is needlessly shell-quoting things
that aren't passed to the shell.
I'll attach a patch that fixes this.

Thanks Will! Patched, tagged, and built. I'm not sure this rates a freeze
exception, but I'll email rel-eng to find out.
