Where? I've never seen that.

I ended up putting a small script in ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts. I
called it OpenTerminalHere and it contains the following:



exec gnome-terminal --working-directory=${dir}

Software is not manufactured, it is something you write and publish.
Keep Europe free from software patents, we do not want censorship
by patent law on written works.

The wire protocol guys don't worry about security because that's
really a network protocol problem. The network protocol guys don't
worry about it because, really, it's an application problem. The
application guys don't worry about it because, after all, they can
just use the IP address and trust the network.
