upstream commit is 048cd5ea2b828dca1a322677a44852a5e0ca844c

Comment 2 Dan Williams 2009-10-19 21:18:59 UTC
though I'm not sure why the gtk-update-icon-cache -f in the %post isn't helping there, but since the icon was unused, it can go anyway

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2009-10-21 05:11:23 UTC
if this could be fixed and tagged into F12 ASAP it'd be appreciated - it's likely to cause some consternation for Beta users who do upgrades. thanks!

Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2009-10-21 22:29:16 UTC
curious about this one: does it occur in the Beta or did it only start with an update that landed after the beta unfreeze (gnome-panel?)

Comment 8 Dan Williams 2009-10-21 23:34:01 UTC
My current theory is:

1) a new icon got added back in late September (which turns out to be unecessary and unused anyway)
2) that new icon would require a gtk-update-icon-cache -f to let the GTK icon theme know about it
3) if the icon theme doesn't know about the icon, you'll get this error
4) gtk-update-icon-theme -f is called from the -gnome package's %post script
5) mccan's applet-schemas patch from late September didn't properly handle the case of updating from a system where the schemas were not previously installed and thus the script run would fail (bug 526519)
6) since the script run would fail due to the missing schemas on upgrade, perhaps the gtk-update-icon-cache -f didn't get run at all
7) applet fail

sound plausible?

In any case, the icon is removed from the builds I'm about to do, and there's a real fix for bug 526519 too.

Second, there appear to be panel size issues; the applet starts up and the panel doesn't have a size for it yet, so it sends the applet a width of '0'.  The applet checks for width < 0, but not for width = 0, before requesting icons.  The GTK icon theme refuses to return any icons for a size of 0, and thus more fail.

Comment 9 Adam Williamson 2009-10-22 00:13:32 UTC
indeed, sounds plausible, and if i'm reading it correctly, explains why we didn't catch the issue just doing clean test installs of the Beta. which is what I was wondering, really.

I ran into this after doing a preupgrade to rawhide a couple hours ago.

Comment 11 James Cassell 2009-10-22 17:11:35 UTC
the problem seems to be gone after updating to:
NetworkManager-gnome-0.7.996-5.git20091021.fc12.x86_64
NetworkManager-glib-0.7.996-5.git20091021.fc12.x86_64
NetworkManager-0.7.996-5.git20091021.fc12.x86_64
