Hi Louis,

I’ve been able to confirm this now. I downloaded the latest macports which happens to use 2.14.7, and ran their gtk-demo. The demo uses the file/directory chooser and sure enough, it generates the same warning. So as Christian and I gathered, this is a GTK issue. If I get a chance I’ll build up the source with debug info (gtk) and see if I can find the root cause and submit a patch for macports. I believe this problem is specific to OS/X (Both PPC and Intel). Likely file system related. I believe that if you get this warning, the one thing that will be disabled is the notification to the chooser of files updates/deletions/creation. Things still work, but a feature is turned off on the directories for getting such notifications.

I’m venturing to guess this is likely not an issue on Linux, but If I get a chance to build this version of gtk I’ll find out.

Well, as an experiment I uninstalled my GTK+-2.14.6 and built and installed 2.12.9 from source. (Had to rebuild gtkglext too, as I discovered.) I then downloaded and built the latest gnubg snapshot.

No warnings.

So I guess there's a bug in gtk introduced at some point after 2.12.9.

Think I'll end the experiment now. Noticed that 2.14.7 is available---might as well move onward.

Thanks for the help,
