I have to agree with you on this problem. The defaults for nautilus are 
insane. Also needing to set choices like text in bar vs. worthless icon 
displays is getting harder to configure. The choices should be browser 
mode as default and the preference screen should have more selections 
vs. scrambling through gconf-editor which needs to be installed so you 
can change bad (IMO) program system behavior options.

Good point! I would think that the system was as advanced as nt4 and 
think. " Turn back! You been down that road before. The bridge is still 
out! "
