Actually, this is the problem of gtk+ 3.0.
It reads and writes ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks instead of
~/.gtk-bookmarks as in gtk+ 2.
This is yet another backward incompatibility introduced by gtk+ 3.
The fastest way to fix this issue is using symlink.
Then gtk+ 2 and gtk+ 3 can share the same bookmarks file.
Probably we should do it in pcmanfm, or have it documented somewhere.
