Places->Home do not work

I've got an fresh install of Jaunty. I didn't format my home-partition under installation and I keept my old one and sat this as mountpoint /home.

After installation everything works fine, and I've got my old /home as my $HOME.

The Home-icon on my desktop works, but none of the "links" or bookmarks under the top menu (Programs, Places, System) work.

I belive this has something to do with me keeping my old home-partition, and I would like to know how I can make this work.

Any clues?

After some googling I found the solution...

It seems that nautilus "forgets" which program (e.g nautilus) to use when opening folders...

1. Open Nautilus (or hit Alt+F2, then type nautilus)
2. When Nautilus opens, right-click on a folder and choose "open with..."
3. Browse for an app and scroll down till you get to nautilus then hit OK.
4. Close Nautilus and try again. Should work OK now.
