Don't like the new behavior and agree with you about it.

Unfortunately, this is not a Red Hat problem ... this is a gnome problem ... 
an upstream problem.  Except for a single BlueCurve theme for both kde and 
gnome, Red Hat is trying to keep as close as possible to what is available 
upstream.

The place to gripe about this is one of the upstream gnome mailing lists.  If 
you check the mail list archives and the gnome cvs, you might be able to 
identify the individual(s) responsible and, maybe, why they have done this.

Obviously mention of this here will have some effect since some of the gnome 
developers are also Red Hat employees.

I have never used nautilus extensively.  The new version will be used even 
less (maybe never).
