Package: nautilus
Version: 3.22.3-1+deb9u1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

I noticed that sometimes when opening fodlers that have a little load
time(folders with many and/or big files) you can reset the value for sort-
directories-first setting. During the loading, when you still see nothing in
nautilus, when you press previous folder, this can default the sort-
directories-first. In my testing I found that it was hard to trigger this, but
it happens.
I have had this issue for a while now, and only figured out the trigger.

So steps to reproduce:
- Open big folder that takes a while to load
- While loading press back/previous folder
This will not always trigger it, so a few tries should be taken.

Kind regards,
