wnck-applet crashes, cannot be restarted
Last modified: 2015-10-26 07:56:31 EDT
Description of problem:
wnck-applet crashed out of the blue and could not be restarted with more than
one of its functionalities - after the window list was added, the workspace
switcher could not be added
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. wnck-applet crashes
3. click "do not reload"
3. right click on panel
4. add to panel
5. try to add "window list" to panel
6. window list gets added
7. try to add "workspace switcher" to panel
8. this fails
Adding other wnck-applet components or adding them in other orders shows the
same problem - the first wnck-applet functionality works, the others result in
killing bonobo-activation-server made things work again
<halfline> riel, if it happens again, can you get a "thread apply all bt full"
of bonobo-activation-server ?
