Hi Bin,

Just a suggestion. The gli appears to store configuration information
for a user in this file ~/.gli/config.xml perhaps the gli doesnt have
permission to create/write/read from this file? I wouldnt expect the gli
when it first runs to absolutely rely on being able to read from this
file, or to not have defaults internally for the size of the gui window
displayed, but I'd say its possible that file permissions are the problem.

Hope this helps,
