Description of problem:
I'm running Fedora Core 2 test 1 on i686. Choosing my directories from
the list (not from the left list box) sometimes takes the file
selector to my root dir (/), and not to the intended directory. Again,
this is the list below the current path buttons. I have verified that
it happens in gEdit, ggv, and other GNOME apps that use the file

Maybe related, rhn-applet-gui fro the command line fails with this error:

File "/usr/bin/rhn-applet-gui", line 30, in ?
import rhn_applet
File "/usr/share/rhn/rhn_applet/rhn_applet.py", line 13, in ?
import gnome.ui
ImportError: /usr/lib/libgnomeui-2.so.0: undefined symbol:

let me know if you need more info,

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gtk+-1.2.10-29.1 gtk2-2.3.5-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gEdit
2. Choose Open from File Menu
3. Navigate to a directory from the main window

Actual Results:  After reaching two directories deep ( ie
/home/myhome/), clicking on a third directory causes the file selector
to go to root directory

Expected Results:  I expect the file selector to go to the selected dir

I think this has been fixed in GNOME CVS; there should be new
packages in the tree at the beginning of next week.
