Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-04-04 04:03:28 UTC
Description of problem:
(Sorry! Scratch bug #119955 - some wrong key somewhere)

While installing rpm for gnome-panel the following shows up
apparently from postinstalls scripts:

WARNING: Failed to parse default value `^@^@' for schema
(/schemas/apps/clock_applet/prefs/hour_format)
WARNING: Failed to parse default value `^@^@' for schema
(/schemas/apps/clock_applet/prefs/hour_format)

This is from 'cat -v' so '^@' are actually null characters.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-panel-2.6.0-1

How reproducible:
It appears that always.  Reinstalling with 
'rpm -Uvh --force gnome-panel-2.6.0-1.i386.rpm'
is producing the same messages.

Thanks for the report, fixed in Raw Hide with gnome-panel-2.6.0-3

Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2005-02-02 00:56:19 UTC
This bug resurfaced with gnome-panel-2.9.90-1.  This time 'cat -v'
gives the following:

WARNING: Failed to parse default value `M-[M-2M-[M-4' for schema
(/schemas/apps/clock_applet/prefs/hour_format)
WARNING: Failed to parse default value `M-`M-%M-(M-`M-%M-*' for schema
(/schemas/apps/clock_applet/prefs/hour_format)
WARNING: Failed to parse default value `M-`M--M-(M-`M--M-*' for schema
(/schemas/apps/clock_applet/prefs/hour_format)

Is this is a new bug which deserves its own report?  Looks
awfully similar.

Comment 3 Mark McLoughlin 2005-02-02 08:23:31 UTC
Better to open a new bug every time you see this. Its going to be a
recurring problem because its easy for translators to make this mistake:

Anyway, fixed upstream. Problem should go away in 2.9.91
