As a test case, I'm seeing this when I run the command "audacious FILENAME.mp3" with the following RPMs versions:

Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2009-07-17 10:57:44 EDT
This is fixed in 2.16.4; I need to fix some other issue before getting the update out.
Comment 3 Peter Bloomfield 2009-08-13 09:21:57 EDT
The test case from http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=581709 still gets the failed assertion in 2.16.5.

I'm guessing that the reason for the assertion in gdk_x11_atom_to_xatom_for_display is that it passes atom to lookup_cached_xatom, which returns None to indicate that atom was not found, but also returns None when atom == GDK_NONE.  If that is correct, it suggests that the assertion belongs in lookup_cached_xatom, and that gdk_x11_atom_to_xatom_for_display (and _gdk_x11_precache_atoms) should be careful not to pass GDK_NONE to lookup_cached_xatom.

Shoulda mentioned: that patch applies to the code tree from gtk2-2.16.5-1.fc11.src.rpm.  It would fail to apply to git master, because that assertion was never inserted there.

gtk2-2.16.6-2.fc11.i586 is out, and I am no longer seeing this message.
