Binary package hint: dolphin

I've been running Dolphin as root a lot recently. I have a backup hard
drive which is inaccessible unless Dolphin is run as root, although I've
read that this is fixed in the upcoming beta. Mega props to the
appropriate people for that upcoming fix.

After applying the latest updates, however, I ran Dolphin as root and
noticed that the Folders view was completely blank.

If I click on "Network", "Network Shares" and "Samba Shares" pops up in
the Folders view like it should. From this point, if you try to click on
anything else, it will either A) make the Folders view go blank again or
B) everything will display as normal no matter what you click on, but
this "fix" only lasts until you close Dolphin.

If I click on "Root" without clicking "Network" or "Trash" first,
nothing happens. If I click "Root" after clicking "Network" or "Trash",
the Folders view gets fixed and displays everything as normal no matter
what you click on. However, this only lasts until you close Dolphin. If
I run it as root again, I'll have to click on "Root" to "fix" the
problem again.

If I click on anything else, the blank Folders view persists.

Sometimes, the error "The process for the file protocol died
unexpectedly" shows up. Sometimes it doesn't. This is so weird that I
don't really know what to make of it.
