Description of problem:
The new libbonobo-2.6.2-1 update package causes at least Evolution to
break. It starts with a couple of complaints about unability to
register things and then sits there unusable.

Other software might be affected too.

A downgrade to the older libbonobo-2.6.0-2 fixes the situation.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to libbonobo-2.6.2-1 via yum / up2date or rpm
2. start of Evolution

Actual Results:  Error popup boxes:
Komponente OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Mail_ShellComponent konnte nicht
aktiviert werden:
Der Fehler von Aktivierungssystem lautet:
Unknown CORBA exception id: 'IDL:omg.org/CORBA/INV_OBJREF:1.0'
Komponente OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Addressbook_ShellComponent konnte
nicht aktiviert werden:
Komponente OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Calendar_ShellComponent konnte nicht
aktiviert werden:
Komponente OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Summary_ShellComponent konnte nicht

Evolution main window comes up but application is unusable.

Expected Results:  no errors

After updating to libbonobo-2.6.2-1 a reboot of the system will fix
the situation and Evolution behaves normal.

Posters on the mailing list confirm that a reboot is necessary and a
temporary runlevel change from 5 to 3 and back to 5 is not enough.

I'd like to confirm this bug with .libbonobo-2.6.2-1 on FC2.

The work-around I found was:

  killall -TERM gconfd-2
  killall -TERM bonobo-activation-server
  killall -TERM evolution-wombat
  killall -TERM evolution-alarm-notify

which may be more than required but it did avoid having to do a reboot.

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.
