Description of problem:

Miro will not start. It gives the Python traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/miro.real", line 119, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/dbus/proxies.py", line 63, in __call__

This happens with an existing .miro directory as well as without any
pre-existing configuration.

I can't reproduce this on my F-8 machine, it starts just fine for me. I'm
running i386, perhaps that might account for the difference.

I'm planning to upgrade to 1.0 soon (bug #380811), I'll check to see if any
python/d-bus related bugs have been fixed since

Comment 2 Steve Fox 2007-11-21 04:34:47 UTC
Unfortunately, I get the same error with Miro-1.0-1.fc8.

Comment 3 Steve Fox 2007-11-21 04:57:27 UTC
Okay, I dug around in the source a bit, trying to figure out what's going on. It
turns out that I had a stale miro process running and Miro's "OneTime" class
apparently has a bug in it. Killing the stale process fixed it.
