I was looking in my "Recent" places in Nautilus and saw a folder named
My understanding is that a folder of the name
. represents the current directory and is not an actual folder. I checked the properties of this folder:
There don't seem to be hidden characters in the name (like space-dot-space). The folder is in
/usr/local/bin and has 4,728 items in it.

If I do
ls -la of
/usr/local/bin I see (amongst other things):
nick:/usr/local/bin$ ls -la total 156928 drwxrwxr-x 7 root nick 4096 Oct 5 14:55 . drwxr-xr-x 11 root root 4096 Apr 10 2015 .. drwxr-xr-x 11 nick nick 4096 May 10 19:18 arduino-1.6.9

/usr/local/bin/arduino-1.6.9 is showing up in the "Recent" list as
This is Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit.
Can you find the reference to /usr/local/bin there and tell us what it says ?
There seem to be a few entries along these lines:
