Unhappy gedit command not opening any file even as root :(

i recently installed Fedora 14 and when i'm trying to open any file i'm getting this error

[root@blitz Documents]# gedit /home/blitz/Desktop/test
GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2270:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL)
Aborted (core dumped)

any suggestions ...

PS- in previous version gedit command used to show some error msg but the file used to open and get edited .

I've heard this issue can be resolved using
su -
to enter root instead of su, can you give this a shot?

From what I understand however, a fix has been issued for this. Have you tried updating all your packages?
