284. Fix for: nautilus-open-terminal opens in $HOME

Update: due to a change in the exec-arg, if you followed the instruction here you now can't open the terminal (using nautilus) at all if you've upgraded to nautilus 3.4.2. Look at this post to fixing it: http://verahill.blogspot.com.au/2012/12/another-nautilus-open-terminal-related.html
Everything should now work perfectly.

Original post:
This has been bothering me for the past week or so: if I use nautilus-open-terminal (i.e. right-click in nautilus and select open in terminal) it now always opens in $HOME instead of in the directory I want it to open in.

 Apparently I'm not the only one: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=692518

Luckily the solution is quick and simple: run this in your terminal, then open a new nautilus window:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec gnome-terminal
