Which menu is this? I cannot reproduce using the Application Menu shell extension.

I can confirm this bug, but I can not say when I first discovered it.

[1] Move your mouse in the top left corner, search for "Nautilus", click the Nautilus icon -> nothing happens.

For a short test, I copied /usr/share/applications/org.gnome.Nautilus.desktop to ~/.local/share/applications/Nautilus.desktop.
If I now repeat procedure [1] above, I see two Nautilus icons. One not working as before, the other one starts Nautilus.

I have the same problem and I can also confirm that changing the launcher name solves it.
In the meanwhile I found two other workarounds:
1. the problem can also be solved by killing nautilus and starting it again, or by
2. preventing nautilus to handle desktop icons.
