Ok, the two are equivalent. The entry in the Preferences is hidden by
default (and can be made visible with Alacarte menu editor in

I'd like you to check if there are weird gconf entries. Start
gconf-editor (Applications/System Tools/Configuration Editor, this is
also hidden by default - you can also run gconf-editor from a terminal
or the Alt+F2 run dialog).
Navigate to /apps/nautilus/preferences. Please check the state of the
keys always_use_browser and no_ubuntu_spatial.
