No.  I mean the Nautilus settings (it's single-click behaviour and all
that) are supposed to be accessible from within the control center (and
the main menu's preferences section), not just from within a Nautilus
window.  This is a usability issue, as the Nautilus settings control the
behaviour the user's desktop, and the behaviour of the user's desktop
belongs in the control center.

When I asked on the GNOME mailing list, they told me there was a desktop
settings entry in the control center, and indeed, in bugzilla, in the
Control Center module there is a component for nautilus settings.  So
I'm thinking either the Debian packages aren't quite right, or upstream
goofed somewhere.
