This isn't always intuitively possible; most menu entries have nautilus
executed without the --no-desktop flag, which means that if you run it
outside of Gnome, you'll end up with it running your background too.  I
wish they'd change that option, or at least change the default behaviour
of the .desktop file.

Golly gee, that just irks me!
