Huh. There is indeed no shortage of output, but it all seems to be gvfs:
none of it is an attempt to send messages to Nautilus. I was expecting
to see a message trying to start Nautilus (or more precisely
org.freedesktop.FileManager1) and perhaps an error reply.

Perhaps it would be more informative if you dbus-monitor'd the first
attempt to reproduce this bug after a reboot? Or if not that, then sorry,
I've run out of ideas.
