Description of problem:
I found a very annoying bug that affects Network Configuration (neat) and
Internet Configuration wizard (internet-druid). I was trying to solve ppp
connect problems. While using nautilus to view some of the directories holding
the ppp configuration files, in particular /etc/sysconfig/networking/ and its
subdirectories, I changed to list-view and sorted by date to find out which
files were being changed. This left hidden ".nautilus-metadata.xml" files in the
afore-mentioned directories. The presence of those files caused neat and
internet-druid to crash without a meaningful message. I think it was the latest
version of neat that showed me a message about something not being a directory
and let me go into python debug where I displayed the variable as holding

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Display /etc/sysconfig/networking/ and subdirectories in nautilus.
2.Switch from icon view to list view, and sort by date
3.Try running /usr/sbin/neat or /usr/sbin/internet-druid

Actual Results:  Application crashes.

Expected Results:  No crash.

Additional info:

Occurs with out of the box version.
Updated version of neat at least displays a message and allows entry to debug
environment which allowed me to figure it out.
Deleting the extraneous hidden files allow the application to work.
