Unable to load Gnome file manager

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)
Description of problem:
When I click on the 'File Manager' menu icon or the 'Home' directory icon,
file manager tries to load but is unable to.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.In menu, click on 'File Manager'
Actual Results: The file manager window opens, and closes immediately and
this happens constantly in the Gnome session. I am able to open other
windows in Gnome but I am unable to do any tasks because the file manager
window overlaps other windows.
Expected Results: The file manager should have opened a window, and
remain open until closed, showing files and directories in the filesystem.
Without starting file manager, Gnome works fine and there are no problems
until I try to access files via file manager. When I switch to the KDE
interface, there are no problems. However, I prefer the Gnome interface
and would appreciate any help. I never experienced this problem in RH7.0
can you tell me what happens when you bring up a terminal and type:
I opened a terminal window & typed 'gmc' but the exact same thing happens.
I have the same problem - message:
Application "gmc", process (7089) has crashed due to a fatal error.
Moving away from gmc, no active development on it anymore.
