Yes, this does look a good one to start off with.

I'd add a comment similar to the following:

I tried recreating this bug with Natty Narwhal (11.04) and with nautilus
version 1: and was unsuccessful.  My new tab loaded
quite quickly and looked the same as the first.

All of that information was gathered via the bug reporting process -
they likely used 'ubuntu-bug nautilus'.  However, you don't need to add
all that information.

These probably aren't relevant.  I'm not quite certain where to go from
here myself, some things that come to mind though are:

What folder is the new tab trying to load?
What configuration values are there for Nautilus could it be one of
those? (I'd experiment on my own rather than ask.)

Also given the fact that there are detailed steps to recreate it I'd
search for any other open nautilus bugs that sound the same.  Please
double check before marking one as a duplicate of another though.
