Here's what I did:
I did a fresh installation with a Ubuntu GNOME daily image in a
virtual machine. I upgraded all packages, restarted, installed zsh then
I saw that the behavior is still there. I do make an observation though
Nautilus (vanilla) by default doesn't have "Open in Terminal" but in
the installation I did it appeared. One would have to install
nautilus-open-terminal to get the functionality (which is what I did in
nautilus-open-terminal/vivid 0.20-1 amd64
nautilus plugin for opening terminals in arbitrary paths
Anyway, if I install nautilus-open-terminal everything works just fine,
zsh works, fish works, but now there are duplicates in your context menu
"Open in Terminal"
So... maybe I'm going crazy or something but these are the results I'm
getting. nautilus-open-terminal works, there's no doubt about that.
So yea, in a way I resolved my issue. Now I just don't know how to get
rid of the duplicated "open in terminal" text.

P.S I installed Ubuntu GNOME and it hasn't been even 24 hours yet as we
