I'm on 14.04

This only happens if the opened windows is showing the content of an ntfs partition - very annoying because my music and video folders are just symlinks to a common (win/ubuntu) storage hdd.

I have all symlinks to folders in an NTFS partition (labeled Data) in place of Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, and Videos in my Home folder. This erroneous behavior (bug?) happens only after I click one of those symlinks and the pathbar displays Data > Documents etc. But it doesn't happen after I right click one of those symlinks and the pathbar displays Home > Documents etc. Maybe this should be reported to Gnome as a bug? –  Sadi May 22 at 10:51
    
I can't change the showed path to home/user/xxx, always show in the pathbar as hdd/xxx and open a new windows –  IvanM. May 22 at 13:42

For now I installed nemo patched for unity as a workaround, it work perfectly as intended - and is somehow nicer than nautilus aswell -

Also considering many other bugs, like the recent background color turning to grey and then sometimes to black as well, this might be a very sensible option in deed ;-) For those interested, further info can be found here: webupd8.org/2013/10/install-nemo-with-unity-patches-and.html and here: webupd8.org/2014/04/install-nemo-220-with-unity-patches-in.html –  Sadi May 22 at 21:46
