My former copy was based in /usr/pkg, while the new one is
based in /usr/local. /usr/pkg have been renamed before an eventual
deletion, to avoid any confusion. 

I wonder if it could be related to
any locale manner. I compiled the packages myself, so if I'm the only
one with this problem, it's probably related with my environment. 

version of DragonFly are you using? 

Thanks for the reply.

old shared libraries or other broken dependencies? Have you tried
uninstalling all XFCE4 dependencies that were installed using pkgsrc and
reinstalling them all freshely with dports?

Every time that I try to open or save a file, a the popup window shows
itself and works normally. But after a few seconds, the popup freezes
and the application sends this message before crashing:

this problem or have a clue of what's causing it, please reply to me.
