Meld deletes MRU files

Fedora 22 and 21, CentOS 7, LMDE

Upon closing Meld, the related Most Recently Used (MRU) files are created in ~/.local/share/meld. The next time I launch Meld all of the MRU files are immediately deleted.

The result is repeatable.

I do not see the behavior with Slackware. The only distinction I notice is the Slackware version is compiled with GTK 2 while all other instances are compiled with GTK 3. I do not know whether that is important or a red herring.

Any ideas?


The culprit: $HOME/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini:

gtk-recent-files-enabled = false
