I emerged meld today (I'm running Gnome 3.18) specifically to do a visual directory compare and merge. When I start it in my normal user account (whether graphically or via console) it will do the diff/compare of the selected directories, but the UI will not allow me to alter (e.g. copy or delete) files in either directory. I tried comparing two folders in my home directory that I know I have full permissions over, so it seems that permissions are not the issue... but if I run meld as root from the console, it works as expected. Is there some user permissions switch for meld or gnome or X11 that I'm missing? Any other ideas what could be wrong?

I can't figure this out. Does anyone have an idea why the normal user account can't operate meld?

After a recent world update, meld seems to be working as expected.
