gui, non-kde, non-gnome text editor & file manager

I'm looking for a graphical, non-kde, non-gnome text editor and file manager. It would be good if the text editor could manage multiple buffers. Not looking for VIM and Emacs thou.

Leafpad -
A gtk+ based file editor. Lightweight and fast. Requires gtk+ > 2.0.

Tea -
Another based on gtk+, requires 2.4 or newer. A lot more features than leafpad, but no gnome dependency.

These are two editors I have tried. Both pretty new in development, but do what they claim to do. You can always search through the 250+ editors at freshmeat if they don't meet your needs.

As far as filemanagers I am hooked on Konqueror and the shell, so I haven't tried any others. I have no need to keep things slimmed down here.
