Nigel, I just now noticed you post. I put this script in my user's bin:
‚úądemios:~$ cat /home/dotancohen/.bin/nautilus
/usr/bin/nautilus --no-desktop --browser "$@"

Of course, ~/.bin is in my path and the script is executable. Note,
however, that it cannot be opened with Krunner (the Alt-F2 dialogue):
