FC5 Cervisia suddenly started doing wierd things....


I have searched here and Google for two days now and cannot seem to find a solution to this weird problem.

Although fairly new to Linux, I've been around computers for years and have tried many many things to get this sorted but apparently senility must be creeping in with my advancing years

Symptoms:

I regularly downloaded tarballs with download manager, clicked on them to extract, pointed them at the folder to extract to and hey presto: extracted and folder opened to show me the files.

Updated Fedora recently and now when I click on any kind of 'zipped up' file it still asks for the location to extract to and it does extract.

However instead of opening the location I get an error message from Cervisia saying: this is not a CVS folder... and then Cervisia loads!

My question is simple (but I suspect the answer will keep me busy for another few days...) How do I stop Cervisia from doing this, or even stop Cervisia at all?

I tried an uninstall of Cervisia to no avail...

TIA

Doc.

(forgot to say: using GNOME)

OK...

Start from scratch then.

Take off Fedora.

Install Debian.

Nice......

Thanks for all your help guys.
