Your opinion only.  Many people only want one setting, and /home would be the 
choice of many.  Actually, it's quicker to change the setting than it would be 
to go through a wizard.

Odd - I have set up folderviews on three boxes, all quite diferent in hardware 
and software, and every one points to the directories I have set - including 
the networked folders.

Relax :-)  It does feel strange at first, but take your time and you'll solve 
your problems.

Could be :-)  I also am running 4.2.1-4.fc10.  Just in case something has 
recently changed I installed a new folderview.  The set as the default /home.  
I clicked on the spanner/wrench and changed Show a Place to 'Downloads'.  I 
got 2 seconds of busy signal, then my Downloads directory was visible.  

I then tried another, setting Specify a Folder to Downloads.  Again it 
displayed correctly.  Then, I went to the Display tab and changed the label to 
/home/Download.  Again, all was well.

Finally I tried another, using Specify a Folder, and changing the Display 
label before exiting - i.e. doing it all as one step.  That too displays 

What exactly did you do that was different from these tests?
