Maybe a theme issue? Try the GTK default theme and see if that helps...

Subject: Rox-Filer bug or missing feature
Hi, I saw your commits in rox-filer.git so I thought I will ask you
about the issue or maybe bug I am hitting for a years with rox-filer.
The arrow selection, when I move around with arrows I don't see where I
am, the only way to tell is to hit space and then up arrow so I am back
at the selected item.
Is there a way to make it select current item or somehow show user where
he is at? I use rox way too much to change to anything else but this
issue drive me crazy. Thanks

Normally there is a rectangle drawn around your selection with a dotted
black line. Perhaps this line is there for you too, but is invisible
because you have changed the background color to black or have changed the
foreground color to white.
If you think that may be the case, try adding this to your
$HOME/.gtkrc-2.0 file (or whatever your personal gtkrc file is):
fg[ACTIVE] = "#999999"
fg[INSENSITIVE] = "#999999"
widget_class "*ViewCollection*" style "rox_view_collection"
The color in this example is a light grey. Depending upon what your
background color is, you may want to use a color with better contrast.
If instead you want to change the background color, use base[NORMAL]. For
instance, this line would set the background to white:
base[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
You didn't say whether you are using the default "Icons View" or the
alternative "List View". "List View" draws the rectangle with the NORMAL
foreground color, instead of the ACTIVE or INSENSITIVE foreground colors,
so use this instead for "List View":
fg[NORMAL] = "#999999"
widget_class "*ViewDetails*" style "rox_view_details"
Whoops, I just reread your message and see that Thomas Leonard already
suggested using the GTK default theme. If that didn't fix things for you,
this probably won't either. But I'll send it along anyway as an
