Thunderbird's AccessibleApplication has an invalid name
Last modified: 2018-04-11 03:37:53 EDT
Description of problem:
thunderbird's AccessibleApplication (seen via AT-SPI) has an invalid name, that
is different each time thunderbird is started.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to reproduce:
1. Enable accessibility with: gconftool-2 --type bool --set
2. Start thunderbird
3. Run test program with: ./test
role name is '8ï¿½' or 'ï¿½8 ' or some other corrupt string
role name is 'thunderbird'
I've attached a test program in C, to leave dogtail out of the equation. Install
at-spi-devel and build it with: gcc -o test `pkg-config --cflags cspi-1.0`
`pkg-config --libs cspi-1.0` test.c
