i think it integrates pretty well with the middle mouse policy of
nautilus. if you are used to middle click in nautilus (like i am....
ohers are probably not) for opening new windows it is pretty intuitive
and feels very well desktop integrated, i wouldn't disable this.

rather teach the user the usability advantages she gains using all three
mousebuttons in gnome :)


got ubuntu ? --------------> GET UBUNTU !!!
