Description Rik van Riel 2008-03-05 15:17:56 EST
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:
1. ???
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
error messages
Additional info:

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 ?
