As it works fine from other tools, that would indicate a problem in

Running a tcpdump while trying to connect, I can't actually see any
packets at all being sent or received when I try to connect. Combined
with the odd variable behaviour (sometimes it just puts an icon on the
desktop, sometimes it pops up an empty nautilus window), I would guess
it's a Nautilus bug.
