Comment 1 Thorsten Leemhuis 2008-01-27 07:46:15 EST
The problem is dealed with upstream already:

There is even a workaround mentioned: "To avoid this problem I run gconf-editor,
and I change "%20" with " " in the path of the file, and I don't access anymore
the Preferences dialog otherwise the problem appears again."

Once it will be fixed the fix will be incorporated in Fedora as well.
