    After some investigation, the origin of the problem has been
    found.
    This is caused by running pcmanfm without fam installed or
    executed.
    When you use pcmanfm with gamin, gamin and libgamin should
    be installed.
    But if you use it with fam instead, fam and libfam should be
    installed, and fam needs to be launched, too.
    Normally, you can find a package named fam in most distros
    which contains famd, a deamon runs on system startup.

    After fam is properly installed and launched, there is no
    problems.
    So, this bug is regarded as fixed. ;-)
    We will add fam to the list of dependencies.
