I have seen nautilus behave like this when it is started without some of
the GNOME services being started.  GNOME 2.6 introduced some background
stuff that had to be working for some GNOME apps to find their themes.
Can you make everything behave if you force a change in the theme from
the theme manager?

Or, if there's nothing there that you are 100% attached to, try
deleting .gnome and .gnome2 to see if it was just some silly config file
somewhere.

just some ideas.  I have NO idea if any of them are worth anything.
