Some crufty old bug - those Gnome .deb's are pretty dated now. Rather than
spending a lot of time on it, I'd suggest either compiling Gnome yourself
from CVS (see www.gnome.org) or waiting a couple of weeks for a new set
of .debs. We'll be code-freezing Dec 15 with a release to follow within a
month, if all goes well. I don't know if Jim will package at freeze-time
or only the final release.
