I had run the calculator from the command line, and from its menu item in the accessories menu without poroblems!

However, when I created a menu item in my own frequently used menu, it crashed the first time I clicked on the menu item!

How to reproduce
1.created menu item
2.clicked on menu item

The backtrace shows that the error occurs in XmuClientWindow, but I can't reproduce it.  I've added a free42 launcher to the Gnome panel, and that works fine.  I'm not sure how to create "my own frequently used menu", so I haven't tried that.  I seem to recall that earlier versions of the Gnome panel had an easy way to add a new empty menu to the panel or to an existing menu, but I can't find it now.

Description: Alacarte is a graphical menu editor that lets you edit, add, and delete
           : menu entries. It follows the freedesktop.org menu specification and
           : should work with any desktop environment that uses this specification.


When I clicked on the item the second time, it worked with no apparent problems!
Comment 4 Eric Smith 2010-05-13 02:58:30 EDT
alacarte is so buggy for me that I am unable to create the menu item; in fact, it is so buggy that I can't even figure out how to write a reasonable bug report for it. "It is not even wrong", as Wolfgang Pauli famously said.

Anyhow, since I can't reproduce it and apparently it now works for you, I'm closing the bug.  If you can get it to happen again, please reopen it.
