gthumb and pine problem


I'm having trouble with gthumb. A synopsis of the problem:
I using rhel3, connecting via ssh to a mailserver also running linux. When I try to view image attachments that are on the mailserver, gthumb is launched. It's looking in the /tmp directory and says no image found. (and nothing new appears to be written there).

For whatever reason, this worked fine 3 days ago. Nothing new has been installed on this machine and admins of the mailserver claim that nothing has been changed on their end as well. Another piece of the puzzle is that for .pdf files, everything works correctly.

Unsure if this helps but on the mailserver, after I try to view an image the following processes are spawned:
25943 pts/15 00:00:00 gconfd-2
27191 pts/15 00:00:00 gthumb
27200 ? 00:00:00 gam_server

Any help is appreciated.

gthumb says 'no image' -- how to fix

I upgraded gnome and had the same problem. This fixed the problem for me:
rm -rf ~/.local/share/
If that doesn't work for you, run this command and delete anything it finds and then relaunch gthumb:
find ~ -name '*gthumb*'
Another tip: run gthumb as another user (eg guest) and see if it has the same problem.
