Default Seamonkey, saving files after updating gtk+

Hi,

I'm not sure if the gtk+ update is relevant here but it was the only
thing I could find that was recently upgraded that may fit. It used to
be that if I was saving a file, picture or attachment in Seamonkey and
created a new folder, it would enter the new folder when I created it
without me having to double click it. Right now, I right click and
select 'save file as' or 'save image as' and a pop up appears as usual.
I then click 'create folder' and it makes a space in the directory for
me to type in the name. I do that then hit return and it creates the
new folder but leaves me in the old folder that I was just in. Example,
I'm in /home/dale/Desktop and ask it to create /home/dale/Desktop/foo,
the old way puts me in the foo directory. The new way leaves me in
/home/dale/Desktop. I then have to double click the foo entry to enter
it to save my file.

I'm so used to the old way that I sometimes forget and end up with a lot
of stuff on my desktop with no idea sometimes what folder it should be in.

This is a list of the packages that were upgraded according to genlop:

Is this because of the gtk+ upgrade? If not, any idea what could cause
this? If it is the upgrade, how do I go back to the old way when it
goes into the folder automatically?

Thanks for any ideas you may have.

Have you changed GTK themes lately? I know some behaviors and button
layouts can be affected by it. I recently changed mine, and the order
of "cancel" and "overwrite" in the "This file already exists" dialog
box was reversed when compared to the old theme. I think I have clied
the wrong one about 90% of the time so far.

Well, I don't know how to change GTK themes so I would most likely think
I have not changed it. How does one check into this? I'm thinking
about going back one version of gtk to see if it goes back to the old
way. I seem to have read somewhere that Seamonkey uses gtk for those
windows tho.

In KDE there's an option in the control panel to change the GTK theme.
If you use something else, I believe you can emerge gtk-theme-switch.
Also try to search portage for packages beginning with "gtk-engines"
(and perhaps emerge the package "gtk-engines" itself). I recently
switched from gtk-engines-qt, which uses my KDE theme (poorly), to
gtk-engines-qtcurve, which looks quite nice and fits in well enough
with the default KDE4 theme, other than the backwards button
placement.

I went to the KDE control center, I haven't been in there in ages. I

got everything like I want it until now anyway.

I may try going back to the old version to test this theory.
