I'm running Gnome in Ubuntu 10.04. Nautilus used to work fine on my system but now it's doing something strange. Whenever I drag a file out of the Nautilus window to move it somewhere else, as soon as the mouse cursor goes out of the window Nautilus closes and the file I was dragging also disappears.

Have you installed some Nautilus extensions or other software lately?
