If you use the nautilus-gksu extension to open up a directory, two folders open up: the directory you wanted to open, and, erroneously, "/". I suspect that if we add the parameter "--no-default-window" to the command executed when a folder is opened, this won't happen.

The affected file is nautilus-gksu/libnautilus-gksu.c. The affected function is gksu_context_menu_activate(). We need a check along the following lines (pseudocode):

if file's mime-type begins "x-directory/" then
CommandToLaunch = "nautilus --no-desktop --no-default-window file"
