This is a clear indicator that having GNOME proxy settings is a bad
idea. Such settings should be shared between desktop implementations.
Is there an effort to standardize these settings on Free Desktop?

I disagree with Evan. It shouldn't be necessary to link to any GNOME
libs in order to benefit from the new GTK+ file chooser. IMO it was
already a bad idea to call the VFS layer gnome-vfs.
