Broken things after updating PCManFM with lubuntu-dev PPA (September 29)

This mail is just to report that september 29 upgrade of several
programs (libfm, pcmanfm, etc) using lubuntu-dev PPA has broken several
things. I mention this, because this PPA has allowed me to upgrade
several programs so I have been able to enjoy the latest PCManFM, the
latest gpicview, among other. And I never had a problem ... until today.
Just in case, I am using Lubuntu Precise.
I used the Update Manager and made the upgrade in the night of September
29 and now I am experience the problem that icons cannot be moved on the
desktop (they ended up sorted in Alphabetical Order) and arranged as
before and when I open PCManFM to manipulate several files, sometimes I
cannot highlight a selected entry (so I am not sure if I selected the
right one, because it doesn't highlight the entry) ... this happens at
least when I try to edit the files in the desktop directory.
In other words, I am experiencing this weird behavior that I never had
in more than a year using Lubuntu, so I guess there was something really
wrong with today's update in this PPA. Then I considered it was worth
reporting it using this mailing list.
Thanks for your attention
