Nautilus Preferences not taking.

Hi
I have been trying to install a 32 bit version of F16 and tweak a few things I am used to in F16 64 bit. I cannot get Nautilus to take the changes I make to preferences. I change the Folder behaviour to Single click and next time I open a Nautilus session it goes back to Double click activation. I am not experiencing this in F16 64 bit.
Kernel 3.2.7-1.fc16.i686.pae
Gnome 3.2.1
Any help would be appreciated...

Hi
It seems that a complete reboot of the computer fixed the issue. Thanks

Re: Nautilus Preferences not taking.

I think I noticed this with F16 when I opened a terminal, su - to root, and then opened nautilus. That caused my user nautilus to forget its preferences and them to be unsettable until a logout and login again.

Hi
I have decided to not pursue a 32 bit install and as such I am going to mark this as solved, at least for me...
