Unhappy Had to rebuild /root partition. now /home link broken

I have just had to rebuild my /root partition (slackware 10.1) because my machine would no longer run linux after a power-cut whilst burning a CD with K3B

The re-install seems to have gone well... most applications - even those I had freshly downloaded and installed like K3B - seem to still work.

HOWEVER... the link to my /home folder on the gnome toolbar does not open my /home folder.

nautilus -- /home/nyghtowl --browser

is what it says after I have attempted to edit it lol.
CLEARLY this is wrong - as I have found out. Could someone please kindly tell me what text should be in that command?

Thanks in advance
