Description Cosimo Cecchi 2008-07-26 12:06:23 UTC

there's really no need for the gnome-vfs dependency in libbonoboui, and it seems that, for some modules like bug-buddy, libbonoboui is the last library pulling in gnome-vfs (many of the other libraries of the stack already moved away from it).
I'm attaching a patch that removes the dep.

pbor mentioned using g_filename_to_uri() instead of the homecooked function. Other than that are you ok with this michael?
