Thanks for your reply.

Well, that means that the Gnome documentation is inaccurate, to say the
least. But also, it is unclear what is the purpose of the "Icon
captions" tab in "File management preferences", which one gets when one
selects the "Preferences" menu item in a Nautilus window. So I'm led to
believe that the problem isn't my system, but that this particular
feature of Nautilus hasn't been implemented yet.

So is this a bug? (I get information displayed at the bottom of
nautilus, as you indicate, but that relates to the directory one is
working in, not to icons one is moving the pointer over.)
