Change default file manager in Gnome

Alright, this is a weird one. I've seen some threads where people want to change the default file manager from Nautalus to something else, but in my case... I want Nautalus back. In fact, I didn't even leave it on purpose.

I'm running Debian testing/unstable and until about a week ago I only had Gnome as a desktop. I decided to play around with XFCE and used it quite regularly, but just felt like using Gnome today. To my surprise, when I click on "Places > Home" or "Places > Computer" (Places > Anything actually..) I get Thunar as the file manager. However, Nautalus is what opens when I click on the Home or Computer "desktop" icons.

At first I figured I would use Alacarte to update the menu shortcuts, but just my luck... the "Places" menu would be the only one that isn't obviously available in there.

If anyone knows a workaround it would be greatly appreciated.
