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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a temporary directory (mkdir ~/test)
2. Run Nautilus and display this directory
3. Remove this directory from a terminal (rmdir ~/test)
4. Press the reload button

Actual Results:  Nautilus window is closed, and error messages disappear too
fast to read their contents.

Expected Results:  Nautilus should not close the window, and (for instance)
should keep moving up in the filesystem tree until finding something it can display.
