Package: libgtk2.0-0
Version: 2.2.4-6
Severity: normal

Those "Desktop" and "Documents" buttons display unaesthetic messages
when they're clicked on and the relevant directories do not exist:
"folder unreadable: no such file or directory"

Maybe they should not be displayed when the relevant directory does
not exist ?  I suppose they only make sense when using gnome/kde, and
are mostly annoying to people using lightweight environments and not
willing to use those dirs.

They are also much too big.  I'd suggest to make them much smaller,
and maybe above the file-selection lists, so that they do not grow the
dialog too much.
