  Nautilus crashing/freezing when opening folder with svg file

Bug description:
  Strange thing started happening a few days ago: When I access nautilus
  from the Places menu and open my home directory (named eric) nautilus
  always freezes.

  I can open subdirectories and other bookmarks such as Documents,
  Pictures, etc and browse files, but the second I browse to my main
  home directory, nautilus freezes.  I can click any icons for sub-
  folders in my home folder, but nautilus will hang and, within a few
  seconds, turn grey and stay that way.

  The only way to get nautilus to close is by forcing a quit.

  I can access any of the files and folders by CLI, or by using emelFM2.

  After much searching, I found an old bug report at:

  . . . which seemed to blame the crashiness on folders containing an
  svg image.

  Interestingly enough, I was messing around in Inkscape the other day
  trying to create a business card and saved my work into my home folder
  as an svg. As soon as I deleted or moved that file Nautilus no longer
