I've not had any trouble with other gtk programs, but investigating
with ddd seems to show they don't call
gtk_file_chooser_dialog_new, even when choosing files 

I've tried gqview, gedit, gnumeric, gimp, gnome-terminal, sylpheed 
Any suggestions as to programs that might call the gtk file-picker? 

I wonder if it might be a case of 2 different cairos linked in and
conflicting? I'll try rebuilding ff with --enable-system-cairo
