nautilus is not remembering settings

nautilus is not remembering my settings. I have done everything I can think of to get this to work. I have deleted .gconf, .gconfd, and .gnome2. I tried to start over fresh and that did not work either. What else can I do?

Which settings is it not remembering? What user(s) are you running it under?

Its not remembering any settings at all. Every time I restart nautilus it forgets all of my settings. The only settings I care about is show hidden files and list view. Something that I would hope would be easy to set.
