Description of problem:
nautilus begins consume 100$ CPU
$ rpm -q nautilus

backtrace of nautilus process
I'm seeing this as well. Exact command consuming CPU is /usr/bin/nautilus--no-default-window (extracted from /proc/<pid>/cmdline). Seems to happen right after first login, logging out and logging back in seems to fix it.

I detected the same problem with nautilus in F19 x86_64.
$ rpm -qa nautilus
The process "/usr/bin/nautilus --no-default-window" is causing constant
CPU usage. I tried to delete ~/.cache/thumbnails and also disabled thumbnails
in Nautilus preferences but it didn't help.

yet another backtrace
This happens to me as well.
This issue is more severe on netbooks / ultrabooks / notebooks in general, since 100% CPU usage means more power consumption, an increase of fan noise and heat in general which is annoying on the lap and increases the change of hardware getting burnt.
I'm currently using a Dell XPS 13 (regular edition) with Fedora 19 and up to date. It's been almost a few months since this bug has been published... do you have any newer information on the issue?

This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
