This happens every couple of weeks, that I attempt to start Nautilus, and am not able to get it running. The only way I have found to get it running again is to reboot the computer.
For a while there, I reported this bug sometimes when it happened, but stopped reporting it because it doesn't help resolve the issue.
It is difficult to see any opportunity in the near future to reinstall the operating system.
In the meantime, does anybody have any suggestions for getting Nautilus running again in these instances without rebooting the system?
