Bug#566020: Nautilus crashes when dragging a file from file-roller to nautilus

Package: nautilus
Version: 2.20.0-7
Severity: normal

When I open an archive in file-roller 2.22.4-2, and drag a file in it to a folder in nautilus, nautilus crashes as soon as my mousepointer touches (hovers 
above) the nautilus screen.

Nautilus is started with the --sync commandline option and throws the following error:

The program 'nautilus' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAtom (invalid Atom parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 83030 error_code 5 request_code 24 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

How can I be of service?
