Description of problem:
The image preview feature of the Nautilus in my FC2 installation has
recently acquired an irritaring but innocuous bug:  The right-hand
side of the thumbnails of images is corrupted.  This FC2 installation
is only about a week old, but the bug did not occur immediately after
installation -- rather after a few days, possibly at the same time
that I did a "yum update".

A quick search of www.fedoraforum.org revealed that others also see
this problem.  More information is thus available from:


A screenshot that someone has made of the problem is available on that

I should also add that gThumb does not corrupt the thumbnails.  Also,
the pattern of corruption is random, it changes even for the same
image being previewed if I force Nautilus to regenerate the thumbnails
for it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
nautilus-2.6.0-4, gtk2-2.4.7-2.5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. View a folder containing images (jpg or png will do) using Nautilus
2. Examine the quality of the thumbnails that Nautilus generate

Actual Results:  Notice the white speckling across the right-hand side
of the thumbnails of the images in the folder.

Expected Results:  One would expect the thumbnails to be exact and
uncorrupted miniatures of the images being previewed.

Reverting to previous version of gtk2 resolve the problem.
