There are two issues I've found with the gedit and gedit3 packages:

- The make file for both doesn't mark them as conflicting packages,
though they both install bin/gedit and bin/gnome-text-editor.
- Since the update to the 3.14 series, gedit3 doesn't take into
account that in order to be usable, it really needs to have an
explicit dependency marked on graphics/adwaita-icon-theme, otherwise
various icons will be missing, and as this new version has done away
with the traditional menu system, it's a bit crippled without these
icons. Without that package installed, I'm presented with various
unlabelled buttons and can't even see the close icon on tabs.

Install gedit3 and try to use it as-is. (Install gedit3 when you
already have gedit and watch the latter disappear.)
(Fixes noted above.)
