The thing is, it won't let me enter a string. It'll only let me enter an integer.
How are you trying to enter this string? Are you using gnome-control-center? If you aren't then give that a try. If you don't want to look around on your menus to find this you can start a terminal and just enter the name and press the enter key.
Then look at themes. It sounds like a theme is messed up. Maybe if you choose a new theme then gnome-control-center will fix your configuration files.
