Description of problem:
Up2date updated a CORBA component today. After this, Evolution did not
load properly. I saw this reported as a bug, and marked as solved in
2003. However, the thuth is that it is there. After log out, and log
in again, none of the applets in gnome are working. Nothing in the
panel appears as it was before. The error in evolution is
Cannot activate component OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Mail_ShellComponent :
The error from the activation system is:
Unknown CORBA exception id: 'IDL:omg.org/CORBA/INV_OBJREF:1.0'
If there is something wrong in the update, then more people will get
the same problem as soon as they update.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the latest update from up2date
2.log in for the first kind of error (applets)
3. click on evolution
Actual Results: The applets should appear in the menu
Evolution does start after error messages, but does not recover the set up
If the computer is rebooted, the errors dissapear.
Maybe it would be convenient to put a message according to this, so
that when the update is complete, the user reboot the computer. Just
as when installing updates of the kernel.
