Description Peter Gordon 2007-05-21 23:47:11 EDT
Description of problem:
Hmm... For some reason, Music Applet shows up only for the first X session. If
the X session is ended too abruptly (such as X crashing or the like), then it
simply never shows up in the panel again. Adding it to the panel does not make
it reappear; though with the next reboot it does show the two instances.

I'll need to investigate this further and look through the BZR log; perhaps a
recent commit has fixed this upstream which I can simply backport as needed.

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

How reproducible:
Every time, apparently.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add Music Applet to the GNOME panel.
2. Make X crash or end abruptly somehow (Ctrl+Alt+Backspace is a good method!
^_^); then login again.
3. ???
4. Profit!!
Actual results:
The Music Applet should show on the panel at all times.

Expected results:
It shows up only for the first session.
Comment 1 Peter Gordon 2007-05-22 00:15:01 EDT
If I run the applet from the CLI before adding it to the panel, it gives me the
following errors:

Still not fixed in 2.2.0. Hmm.

I see this same problem without crashing X. I just had logged out, then logged
back in. Rebooting allowed the applet to load (had several copies running :)
Comment 5 Peter Gordon 2007-11-04 00:25:46 EDT
This is fixed in Rawhide/F8. Not sure exactly if it was some X update or 2.2.1
of music-applet; but I'm no longer seeing this issue (having crashed X
intentionally about four times, the applet loads and runs properly after each).
2.2.1 is in the update queue for F-7 and F-8. 

Please reopen this if you are still experience the bug with further details. Thanks.

Gaah; just crashed X again and Music Applet went with it. Need to dig into this
much farther, it seems. :(

I should note, this is on F-8. I don't believe rawhide users should experience
any similar issues any longer.

Steve, do you still experience this issue with updated packages? I'm not sure if
it's the 2.2.1 update or an X update or whatnot, but this seems to have been
fixed somewhere in the past week or so. I'm no longer experiencing this, personally.

Comment 9 Steve Fox 2007-12-14 11:49:50 EST
Looks good now. Thanks!
