Description Ken Crandall 2001-08-07 20:36:38 UTC
Description of Problem:
Even if you set Nautilus to use the same window in the preferences, 
the "Start Here" menu items still cause Nautilus to open new windows.  
When logged in as root, it causes the root warning to reappear constantly.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in as root. 
2. Start Nautilus, and select preferences.  (I have my user level set 
to "Advanced".)  Tell Nautilus to use the same window when opening.
3. Open the "Start Here" folder and select an item.

Actual Results:
Nautilus opens new windows and displays the root warning whenever "Start 
Here" items are selected.

Expected Results:
Nautilus should re-use the current window to open the slected item.
