Daniel,
It regretted to inform you email on the above subject is no use for the
following reasons:

I am newbie to ubuntu and linux. I use WinXP most of time.
Since ubuntu 12.10 has been crashed and  just now has been re-installed
from scratch.

 *Reason*:Trying to install ubuntu 12.04(for the purpose of Ocropus Project
for which python 2.7.3 required -works fine - whereas in ubuntu 12.10
failed to work) as a result entire OS winxp and ubuntu 12.10 crashed. In
order to recovery/restore to original position -  I re-installed ubuntu
12.10. Now I am able to boot the both OS viz winxp(*which is important for
me*) as well as ubuntu 12.10.

*how problem arised*:  I had downloaded both versions of ubuntu
12.04(64bit) and also 12.04(without 64bit) burned CD/RW - but failed to
install and crashed - due error at sector (where I dont know - displayed in
light green color on the monitor)  Again I tried using another burned
CD/RW  also failed.
Now again as a final attempt I am re-downloading ubuntu 12.04(i386.iso) and
waiting for completion. If this also fails, I am thinking install old
version 10.10
and then upgrade to 12.04.
It appears that iso of ubuntu 12.04 in the website are corrupted? Now I am
perplexed and afraid to use ubuntu of future version - lest I loose winXp
and data etc. unless there is ubuntu recovery CD for restoring lost/damaged
grub.

*Suggested solution*:  I wish for  benefit of newbie/users like me, the
following suggestions are made below for consideration.
Create one General Recovery CD for all ubuntu versions - to restore/recover
the lost grub as well as all OS if any. due to unforeseen circumstances.

OR if Recovery Mode/option added to   the Grub  in the installed ubuntu -
it should be able to restore the damaged/lost grub to original position
automatically.
For this purpose it should be introduced in all existing ubuntu and future
one.  This option will encouraged the newbies/users like me to use ubuntu
without any fear/frustration  and thus preven runaway from ubuntu.

The position may kindly  be brought to the kind notice of appropriate
authority
/team - for consideration and implementation.
With warmest regards,
-sriranga(79yrs)

  This problem happens randomly on ubuntu 12.10, as of the updates to
  quantal and quantal-proposed on September 20.  Nautilus did not change

  both prominent in the stacktrace.  (I can't tell yet which is really
  the culprit, so, excuse my imprecision, I'm adding them both to the
