Hum... maybe is some kind of bug affecting those virtual file system and
how KDE and GNOME manage them. Look, as soon as you copy the file and put
it elsewhere away from the virtually mounted filesystem, DE editors can
open the file without problems.
In fact, under Squeeze it works as expected (any file under "/sys" or "/
proc" can be opened with gedit).
