firefox and nautilus refuse my home directory with crashes

I think I have seen this before: when I try to upload a file into gmail,
Firefox crashes.  When I try to access my home directory or other dependent
directories, nautilus crashes silently, doesn't even start from Places.

I think it's a configuration issue, or some file in the configuration.  I've
deleted .gconf and .gconfd, as well as .gnome2, completely, with no help.
So I have started copying my directory structure over to another user name
that is working fine.

This started less than 24 hours ago.  Can anyone explain?

there is no ground whatsoever for supposing it is true.
