291. Another nautilus-open-terminal related bug

We recently had issues with nautilus-open-terminal opening the terminal in $HOME no matter from which directory it was called: http://verahill.blogspot.com.au/2012/11/fix-for-nautilus-open-terminal-opens-in.html

In that post the fix was to do
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec gnome-terminal

Which worked fine as long as the exec-arg remained '-x'. It seems to have changed to '-e' now, so during the past few days (since nautilus 3.4.2) 'open terminal here' doesn't open a terminal at all.

Looking at this: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=693894

gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec
gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec-arg
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec x-terminal-emulator

It should now work normally.
