Description Matthias Clasen 2006-11-21 11:16:09 EST
This is a fix found in the upstream 2.16.2 control-center package that
prevents a possible NULL pointer dereference. It can happen in situations
where dbus is not available when gnome-session is run. Unfortunately, I 
don't have explicit reproduction information, but the patch is obviously
correct and harmless.
