User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
switchdesk craps out as soon as you try to run it. I know some people
have been reporting troubles with it on the mailing list but they're
saying they've gotten it to run at least once. I cannot get it to run
at all.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run switchdesk from the menu or the commandline
2. it fails

Actual Results:  switchdesk did not run at all.

Expected Results:  it should have given me my desktop options.

it's already fixed in 4.0.3-1, which should be available in rawhide
now. Thanks for your report
