Description of problem:
Epiphany won't start. I get the following message in a popup window.
Bonobo couldn't locate the GNOME_Epiphany_Automation.server file. You
can use bonobo-activation-sysconf to configure the search path for
bonobo server files.
Bonobo version is bonobo-1.0.22-8.1.
File /usr/lib/bonobo/servers/GNOME_Epiphany_Automation.server exists.
I tried running as root
$ bonobo-activation-sysconf --add-directory=/usr/lib/bonobo/servers

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Epiphany
Actual Results: The popup window is displayed and Epiphany does not
Expected Results: Epiphany runs.

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.
I have no such problem under Fedora Core 3.
