xchat-gnome crashes when notifications plug-in is enabled.

Description of problem:
xchat-gnome crashes when the notification plugin is enabled. This has also been
submitted as a bug to the xchat-gnome project.
After reviewing this with some of the xchat-gnome developers, I believe this to
be a dependancy problem.
Fedora Core 5 comes with libnotify-0.3.0-6 and Fedora Extras 5 comes with
According to the xchat-gnome developers xchat-gnome 0.10 requires
libnotify-0.3.2. In fact, they say it can't even be built with 0.3.0.
This is very likely the cause of the crashes that I experience with the
notification pluggin enabled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core release 5 (Bordeaux)
Steps to Reproduce:
This is due to the dbus plugin (XChat-Gnome Remote Access) not being activated.
To prevent this from happening to other users, if the OSD plugin is selected,
it should also activate the dbus plugin. Once I get some free time, I look to
see how hard it would be to implement this.
I checked out your CVS version (prospective 0.11-1.fc5 I suppose), and this
problem is gone, in that the DBUS plugin apparently can't be deactivated now.
At least, if I try, I get an error dialog saying there was a problem unloading
the plugin. Are you planning on releasing the new package, or are you waiting
for a fix for that dialog?
xchat-gnome-0.11-1.fc5 was already pushed out on 06-Apr-2006.
