2.2.3 (Debian unstable)


All the unreadable files you can see in the rox window on this screenie
are created on xffm startup.

My xffmrc.xml was modified the 03/17 for the last time, so I guess the
problem appeared around this date for the first time.

My laptop, with the same distro (and same glib), runs xfce 4_2 built the
03/16 and xffm works fine on it.
