Re: Annoying GTK2 file dialogue - where to file the BUG?

Dear Sam,

thank you for your patient and thorough reply.
I added my points to some existing bug reports - I hope 
they won't get me wrong.

Well, with KDE, I get a /!\ Warning:
"Unable to start the settings manager 'gnome-settings-daemon'.
Without the GNOME settings manager running, some preferences may not 
take effect. This could indicate a problem with Bonobo, or a non-GNOME 
(e.g. KDE) settings manager may already be active and conflicting with 
the GNOME settings manager."

Maybe I need to install Gnome Desktop and run this tool from there?
But maybe there is a global option to replace the gtk+ FileChooser by 
any other fileselectbox (as known from Atari GEMDOS)...

@Michael: You are possibly right - but:
- Developers tend to know better what component is responsible
- Next to bugzilla, a developer list might be a working option
  to reach the GTK+ coders themselves.
