The reason for this is that in 1.10.1 the new gsettings key
"search-win-is-transient" was implemented. If I remember correctly, for
such cases you had to execute a command which installs the new gschema
file in your dconf database. Search in your scripts for generating the
old CentOS gcmd packages. IIRC you had this command executed once, but
for the moment I do not recall what it was.

Uooo. You ran into the situation which will happen when you downgrade
from 1.10.x to 1.8.x ... It is described in the list of new features
for 1.10.0 that when you first start the new version, all the config
files from ~/.gnome-commander are moved into ~/.config/gnome-commander.
Now that you downgraded again, gcmd 1.8 can not find the config files
so it gives you the error above. So, what you experience here is is
normal behavior. :-)

No, this is totally related to where Gnome Commander stores its
options. Mate or Gnome3 has nothing to do with it.
