what version of GTK are you using?

there is a regression in GTK that affects this (its holding up 3.0, actually)

gtk+-2.24.12 and gtk+-3.6.3 are installed here.

please try it on a session/path without a symlink to verify that it is ONLY a problem there. that will help separate out whether this is the same problem that is caused by the GTK regression.

apologies, i thought i had tried it with a symlink-less path, but trying it again right now it still happens whether or not the session path has a symlink: regardless the session is created in the home folder.
