Description of problem:
After I updated my libgnome, the keyboard doesn't autorepeat any
more.  When I try to set keyboard autorepeat rates in Preferences ->
Keyboard, I got:

  An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information
  for gnome-settings-daemon.  Some of your configuration settings may
  not work properly.

When I clicked Details, I got:

  Type mismatch: Expected `int' got `float' for key

Also, when I enabled Repeat Keys, every time I typed a character it is
shown twice.

I am also having problems with icons not showing up on Nautilus.  I
don't know if this is related.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just upgrade libgnome.

I am also getting similar symptoms -- I have no key repeat, but when I
enable it I get two keys per keystroke.  I was getting the same error
message after I did an upgrade, but have not received that error since
I did a clean install.  I'm using Fedora Core 2.  

I don't recall seeing this problem when I first installed Core 2.  I
did install some of the KDE libraries, and that's when I first saw the
issue (along with my background being messed up).  I uninstalled those
KDE libraries, but all my problems still persist.

I have more problems: I cannot set the background, and when I tried
setting the theme in Preferences it tells me that it cannot find any
default themes.  Downgrading back to libgnome-2.6.0-2 solves all the

Is anyone going to look at this?  It's been open for a month and a half.

I have the same problem.  Very annoying.  I would be very happy to
give more details if needed for a fix.

Fedora Core 2

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
