Description of problem:
When i try to access a file from the recent-place in the redhat-menu on the
panel, then i always get a note about not being able to fetch the file.
(translated from swedish, that is).

This is sort of the output in the dialog:

---dialog output
The following files could not be shown becaus Eye of gnome could not fetch them:
---end of dialog output (translated by me from swedish) ---

It seems that nautilus do strange things with my "My Documents" folder in

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a folder with the name "My Documents" in /home/user/
2. Move some files there, and play with them.
3. Now try to open them from the "open recent"-place in the menu on the panel,
it wont work.

Actual Results:  Gnome thinks that "My Documents" in /home/user/ is two folders
so it all goes nuts.

Expected Results:  Opening the one file i ask to open.

Additional info:

RedHat 8.0.93 (The second beta that is).

Well, its bound to be fixed by now :-)

(Should be fixed from gnome-panel 2.3.1 on ...)
