      I use Gnome version 2.14.1, and I happen to have a gvim icon on my
      toolbar. With that, I don't see the problem you're having.
      What does :pwd show? ie.

      gvim .
      :pwd
      (select file)<cr>
      :pwd
      :e .
      :pwd

      And again: are you doing the sequence above (excepting that you're using
      a icon instead of the initial gvim)?
