Description Matthias Clasen 2006-07-21 12:24:10 EDT
It happened a number of times for me; clicking the help button in
the window capplet, and yelp keeps respawning. It also happened
to me when using the Help menuitem.

wow that's nasty, adding to blocker list.
Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2006-07-25 16:02:00 EDT
Which applet is it exactly?  Window Selector?  Window List?  All of 'em?

Add which version of yelp do you see this with?
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2006-07-25 21:10:23 EDT
I see it with the yelp thats in rawhide currently, and it also happens when you
start yelp from the commandline.
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2006-07-26 11:42:59 EDT
one thing to keep in mind is that we are not shipping the latest yelp currently,
and upstream has moved from using bonobo-activation to using dbus, so it may
be wise to wait for gecko 1.8, and check that the problem still occurs with
the latest upstream, before diving deeply in this.
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2006-07-30 11:54:48 EDT
looks like the latest yelp works much better.
