I know you could describe this has an upstream bug but this is a MAJOR annoyance.

Since latest update of audacious, one can't use nautilus in gnome (3 fallback mode), because it simply launches audacious which has mime/type associated with inode/directory.

So I can't browse files if I click one Home folder or whatever because it luacnhes audacious instead of nautilus.
This task depends upon

the fix is to remove inode/directory from the MimeType line in the .dsktop file

The fix is to change your default application for opening directories. "inode/directory" in the .desktop file means that Audacious can handle directories on its command line, not that it should be picked as the default application to open them.

I concur with John. See for instance:

Please create a bug report for GNOME/Nautilus: it should not default to calling an external application to open directories...

The same error occurs on KDE with Dolphin as file manager.
Adding the .desktop file might be the right thing to do according to the specification, but right neither Gnome or KDE appears to do this, and so Audacious breaks them... (Or is it perhaps a just a Gnome as Firefox is GTK?)
Sorry for ths re-open request, I don't seem to be able to comment on closed bugs, or I just cant find the comment button...
