Description Matthias Clasen 2005-06-22 15:30:40 UTC
GTK+ 2.8 slightly changes the format in which the file chooser bookmarks are
written. When RHEL5 comes around, we might see people use their home directories
with both 2.4.x (from RHEL4) and GTK+ >= 2.8 (from RHEL5), and in order to 
prevent problems with the file chooser bookmarks in this scenario, a small
patch should be applied to GTK+ to make it handle the new format.

A similar patch will be necessary for the gnome-vfs file chooser backend
in libgnomeui.
