Looking in /var/log/gdm/:0.log

there are loads of these messages

Well it seems that launching Nautilus using kdesu causes this.

Quote: "Because the user is trying to run as a different uid but still has the DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS pointing to his own bus. This is completely a security feature and not a bug."

Adds security, removes usability :(

How else are we supposed to run Nautilus as root from the drawer?

su - root -c nautilus

nearly works except for Network connections where I get

Could not display "network:///".
Nautilus cannot handle "network" locations.
