Comment 3 Carter Kozak 2014-07-14 14:55:26 UTC
This is a dbus timing info.  If you open the gui twice in quick succession, we can't detect that it's being concurrently opened.

I don't believe this is a problem for most real use cases, and the gui behaves properly in most situations when there are two instances running concurrently.
