Description Zack Cerza 2006-08-18 19:41:40 UTC
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):

How reproducible:

Steps to reproduce:
1. Enable accessibility with: gconftool-2 --type bool --set
/desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility true
2. Start thunderbird
3. Run test program with: ./test

Actual results:
role name is '8�' or '�8 ' or some other corrupt string

Expected results:
role name is 'thunderbird'

Additional info:
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

Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report.  If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.

We haven't got any reply to the last question about reproducability of the bug
with Fedora Core 6, Fedora 7, or Fedora devel. Mass closing this bug, so if you
have new information that would help us fix this bug, please reopen it with the
additional information.
