Hrm...  I'm using gentoo's version, which is probably the normal release.

Anyway, I just set up a new account and tested it...  Everything works fine.

I guess I must have some messed up some config files, though I can't imagine
what files would affect this.  I also noticed that I'm missing the
Compress/Expand contex menus, along with the MoveTo and CopyTo options. 
Any ideas what files I need to fix?
