Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

got this error logged into .xsession-errors on maverick

while upgrading to the latest gdk-pixbuf package, i've seen complaints about not finding (file not exist) gdk-pixbuf....loaders.cache.
Looking at this path, it seem exist after upgrading (/usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf/2.10.0/loaders.cache), and reinstalling this package dont show these complaints.
