Simon, Morgan,

I have the latest version of Rattle, 2.5.30, correctly installed, I  
think, and running on R version 2.11.0 Patched (2010-05-01 r51879)  
under OS X 10.5.8.  I have the same problem as you, Morgan, i.e., the  
Gtk warning "Unable to find default local directory monitor type".   
Here is a run that provokes the message:

(R:2547): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to find default local directory  
monitor type

The rattle() function seems to start X11.  This takes some time.  When  
the X11 console finally appears, ensure that Data is the active tab  
and Source is set to Spreadsheet.  Click the Filename button.  On my  
installation that is sufficient to cause the warning.  Is that your  
experience, Morgan?  It might be necessary to begin browsing in the  
Select A File dialog.  In that case, select All Files in the file type  
dropdown, navigate to, say, a tab-separated file, and click Open.  I  
enclose such a file for your convenience.
