8 I thought this was fixed in the latest revision of nautilus, could you
9 please try :
10 emerge -C nautilus
11 emerge nautilus
13 and see if it is still a problem?

23 Now this is really obscure, because we just install gconf with the
24 default permissions, no changes or anything there, although we had to
25 manually create the /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory or the installation
26 would fail on some users systems.

32 What? err, I assure you, we do not change the settings for gconf, the
33 only place where we actively change users settings in Gnome2
34 installation is moving GDM to use the default graphical greeter.

41 Gnome terminal starts with menus by default on users systems here and on
42 a clean installation, the no icons seem to be a problem of removing
43 gnome-core at some point, please try :
45 emerge libgnome gnome-terminal gnome-desktop gnome-panel
46 those are the packages that contain icons, and should be the ones who
47 interfere with your system.
50 Other users who have recently installed Gnome 2, could you please check
51 if this is the same behaviour that you have?

59 ....right now I'm starting to think we have too many configurations to
60 oversee and thats causing us a lot of unnecessary bugs.... I understand
61 RedHat in their no-support-updates policy.
