This looks like another vfolder bug.

If i launch "nautilus preferences:///MorePreferences" (or go there directly
after starting nautilus) it claims that does not exist, and if you then go to
preferences:/// there is no More Preferences item. However, if you initially go
to preferences:/// there is a More Preferences item that goes to
preferences:///MorePreferences (and works).
