When you right click in nautilus (eg from Desktop) and select Search for

After clicking OK you can do a search

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right click in a folder
2.Select Search for Files....
Actual results:
The error above (with the path from where is was started)

Expected results:
No error

Additional info:
Probably the path passed to gnome-search-tool from nautilus is passed twice or
something like that.
Comment 1 Will Woods 2008-05-01 16:03:11 EDT
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.
