Bug#507632: nautilus 2.24.1 crashes on startup, fails to draw desktop

Package: nautilus
Version: 2.24.1-1
Severity: normal

Using nautilus from experimental causes a segfault. As a result, I have
no icons or trash can on the desktop and no right click menu.

Starting nautilus --no-desktop seems to work fine.

A "crash report" from bug-buddy is attached.
