           Summary: gimp's ~/.thumbnails directory is owned by root after a
                    fresh installation
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: gimp
        AssignedTo: seb128 at ubuntu.com

When I ran gimp for the first time after installing Hoary, it kept complaining that it couldn't create    
a directory called ~/.thumbnails/normal.  When I looked, I found that three directories --    
    
~/.thumbnails/    
~/.thumbnails/large    
~/.thumbnails/normal    
    
-- all existed, and were all owned by root.  After a quick 'sudo chown', gimp worked normally.
