Initial 'cannot be operated with icon in notification area' needs to not happen as much

Description of problem:
Initial 'cannot be operated with icon in notification area' needs to not happen
as much. Really, it either needs a 'stop telling me this' thing, or a 'I've
popped up today/this week/whatever, I shouldn't do so again' detection ability.
It's _really_ annoying to see it every time one logs in as a local user.
Alternately, cause it to pop up if someone actually tries to interface with the
icon with no smartcard inserted? That makes far more sense to me.
Also, the phrasing "cannot be operated with its icon in the notification area"
could either mean "by using the icon" or "if the icon is in the notification
area". I presume you mean the former, but it needs to be rephrased to be more clear.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in as a local user.
Message box pops up about the use of ESC
Only happen once! Or let one choose to make it stop. Or only pop up when one
tries to use the icon.
OK, I think I have jack as the default owner of all esc bugs no matter how they
come in now...
Suzanne: What is the exact dialog? Can you paste a screenshot in? In addition
to making it happen less often, I'd like to fix the wording.
"ESC can not be operated with its Icon in the notification area.
Please insert a Security Key to bring ESC to life."
Do you actually need a screenshot, or is this sufficient?
Performed Rawhide build, esc-1.0.0-8. Tested on local machine. Problem did not
occur for me. If problem persists for others, it could be related to a
undiscovered issue with the user's profile. The profile is located in
I have stopped seeing in in recent updates; I don't know what that means,
really. Is it fixed? Is there no way to get that message at all anymore?
That message happens when the notification icon misbehaves. Efforts have been
made to address that. Regardless, as of Rawhide build esc-1.0.0-9, this message
won't show up even if the icon fails.
In the case where the icon fails for good reasons or not, the ESC "Manage Keys"
page will now pop up when the program is selected from the menu.
The message is certainly not showing up, have not yet verified that the manage
keys page pops up with icon failures, as I do not yet see the icon itself
Closing out as resolved with the 20061111.0 trees.
