Description Ed Young 2008-01-26 06:56:28 EST
Description of problem:
mail-notification fails during gnome startup

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

How reproducible:
Every time I login.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot up computer
2. login
3. mail-notification failure notice displayed on screen after gnome is up

Actual results:
mail-notification failure notice quite evident on screen

Expected results:
It just works silently.

Additional info:
This appears to be a timing issue.  If I start mail-notification manually just
after I acknowledge the bug-report it works as expected, and well I might add.

we had a similar report where nome somehow tried to start mn two times. Could
you check this is not the root-case for your problem?

Thank you, you have found the problem!  The mail-notification was listed twice
in the session startup list.  One was listed as "unknown" and I could only see
that it was a mail-notification when I edited that item.

I have changed the Bug status to Resolved: NOTABUG

This was driving me nuts.  I had checked the session, but hadn't looked into the
'unknown's.  Oh well, session lesson learned...
