Ubuntu 7.10 – A Gutsy Annoyance

An annoyance that has occurred while upgrading some of my systems to Ubuntu 7.10:

My home directory has suddenly been litered with new directories.

Documents
Music
Pictures
Public
Templates
Videos

Normally this wouldn’t bug me, but due to the case-sensitivity that is default on most Linux file systems, I ended up with duplicates. I already had a ‘documents’, ‘music’, ‘pictures’, and ‘videos’ folder… now I’m doubled up. It’s a little annoying, but what can you do? I’m not exactly sure which portion of Gnome causes these new folders to be created, but personally I think it should check for lower-case equivalents. If I can figure out what actually causes it I’ll file a bug…
