[solved] xfce4: nautilus-2.32 spam when opening a browser window

I've seen several posts dealing with this, but none of them helped me.  I'm using xfce4, but have nautilus-2.32 as both my desktop and file manager.  While I have no problems opening nautilus windows from within nautilus, if I try to open one from the terminal "nautilus ." or any other source, I get 6 windows: one opening to the place I want and 5 to my home folder.  I see that nautilus-3 doesn't do this, but the reason I'm on xfce at all is that I don't like gnome3, including the removal of certain buttons and options in nautilus.  So does anyone know how to force nautilus to only open one window when I ask it to?  "nautilus -n" (no dir specified) opens 5 windows rather than 6, but I haven't found any other option to affect this.

An easy workaround for this is to edit /usr/share/applications/nautilus.desktop and set X-GNOME-AutoRestart=false instead of true.
