    If it's just tarred, then use "tar -xvf filename.tar". If it's gzipped, then use "tar -xvzf filename.tar.gz". If it's bzip2'ed, then use "tar -xvjf filename.tar.bz2".

    Try running "strace nautilus" and see if it terminates from a signal.

    Code:
    nautilus: error while loading shared libraries: libcdda_paranoia.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    It seems that you have to install cdparanoia or something.

    LOL! Sorry, then... I just couldn't think of anything but to agree with you. =)

    I always lock my display as well, or my little sister will immediately come running along and do terrible things to my precious work. =)
    It comes with the xscreensaver distribution and is called xlock. It usually presents itself under GNOME's "Actions" menu.
