Description of problem:
bonobo-activation-server process does not die after logout

full info at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=148071

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login to gnome
2. launch evolution
3. log out

Actual Results:  log in with Console or other account, and note that
the process tree still contains

/usr/libexec/bonobo-activation-server --ac-activate --ior-output-fd=18

even after a protracted period of time

Expected Results:  /usr/libexec/bonobo-activation-server exiting
normally either at, or a reasonable time after logout

Additional info:

a patch exists at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=148071 for
gnome 2.6,
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/attachment.cgi?id=29734&action=view, which
has been checked into both trunk and gnome-2.6 branches.

Perhaps this simple patch could be released for FC2 users, to help
clear up all the stray processes left around*, making less work for
admins weeding multiples of them back out, hours later. 

* processes left 25 minutes after user logout,

I believe this bug is also blocking bug 128886; please confirm.
Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 12:39:59 EDT
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-05-11 17:36:18 EDT

This bug is being closed because it has been in the NEEDINFO state for a long
time now.  Feel free to reopen the bug report if the problem still happens for
you and you can provide any information that was requested.

These bugs are probably the same issue: bug #123655 and bug #281471
