annoying eog warnings



When I run "eog" to view an image, it always outputs some warnings:

   $ LANG=C eog ../images/image73-s1280x1024-a3-Ftriang-g1.8.png
   ** (eog:5433): WARNING **: Failed to lock:  No locks available
   ** (eog:5433): WARNING **: Failed to lock:  No locks available
   ** (eog:5433): WARNING **: Failed to lock:  No locks available

It's not just ugly either -- it seems to delay startup significantly (I
gather it's timing out on something).

eog --version says:   Gnome eog 2.10.2

The above is from my work machine.  This _doesn't_ happen on my home
system, and eog starts up much more quickly there despite my home
machine being far slower.

I wonder if it has something to do with my homedir being in NFS (though
the image file above is on the local disk)?

Anyone know what's going on and how I can fix it?

Thanks,

-Miles
