Description Pete Zaitcev 2006-11-24 01:41:38 EST
Description of problem:

gvim spews messages to standard error:
** (gvim:3472): WARNING **: failure: no device event controller found.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run gvim
Actual results:

[zaitcev@lembas ~]$ gvim Pad
GTK Accessibility Module initialized
[zaitcev@lembas ~]$ 
** (gvim:3484): WARNING **: failure: no device event controller found.

** (gvim:3484): WARNING **: failure: no device event controller found.

Expected results:

No extra messages.

Additional info:

This is a regression in this build.

Messages are generated for every key press and release.

Since I run gvim from command line a lot, it's a big deal for me.
Comment 1 Karsten Hopp 2006-11-24 05:26:26 EST
I don't get those messages with the same vim version.
You're running some kind of accessibility stuff, this message looks like it's
coming from atk.
I'll reassign to atk to get some comments from the maintainer
Comment 2 Pete Zaitcev 2006-11-25 15:31:55 EST
I think it's scim's fault actually. I logged in and out and the messages stopped.
Scim has a daemon component, so I suspect an upgrade made daemon and libraries
mismatched. I'm closing this.
Comment 3 Pete Zaitcev 2006-11-25 23:51:25 EST
Aww. It seems like a real bug after all. It starts happening after a certain
time after login. I don't think I have any accessibility functions enabled.
There's that silly message about "GTK Accessibility Module", and it better
be suppressed, but it seems like a red herring.
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2006-12-01 22:13:59 EST
This message does indeed come from at-spi. It indicates that the a11y registryd
died for some reason.
Comment 5 Pete Zaitcev 2006-12-09 01:44:35 EST
Hilarious... Running registryd by hand (after it dies) terminates the login
session. Anyway, now it should be running with ulimit -c 100000, and I hope
you aren't trying any tricks with signal intercept, so we should know why
it exists after 30 hours of uptime.

Comment 7 Joachim Frieben 2006-12-11 07:24:03 EST
(In reply to comment #0)
This happens also for other "GTK" based applications like "gedit".
The annoying thing about this is that these warnings keep getting
spawned to the console all the time pushing the "real" content
beyond the window limits.
Comment 8 Pete Zaitcev 2006-12-20 19:55:54 EST
Is there a chance for this to get fixed any time soon?

I was unable to get rid of at-spi. It's require by gail, and gail is required
by control-center.
Comment 9 Pete Zaitcev 2006-12-21 20:02:16 EST
You guys are going to laugh really hard, but I found that the accessibility
can be switched off by running gnome-at-properties (it's installed by
control-center). That takes urgency off the issue.
Comment 10 Matthias Clasen 2006-12-21 20:52:47 EST
I'm sorry. I thought you knew that.

*** Bug 228207 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 12 Josh Boyer 2008-03-10 09:16:33 EDT
Is this still valid any longer?  If not, we can probably close this out...
Comment 13 Joachim Frieben 2008-03-10 10:56:01 EDT
I haven't had these warnings in a while .. Currently running
