This isn't a GnuCash data file.  This looks like a GConf data file.  So
this begs the question of what's going on, but it sounds like it might
an Ubuntu 9.10 bug.

What happens if you move your data file somewhere else?  I.e., instead
of putting it into ~/Documents, saving your data file somewhere like
~/GnuCash-Files or some other new directory?

PS: Sorry I didn't respond to this earlier, I was offline all weekend
and I'm just finally getting back to my email.
