Does this happen every time or only sometimes? Was the X server running? Is the package correctly installed? Please run rpm -V gnome-applet-timer and post the output (if any) here.
And please post the output of:
(That's part of "is the package correctly installed" from above, because python tries to import that module, which fails.)

This happened the first time I logged in after upgrade to F14 (from F13).
It asked me to delete or not the applet.
I said "no".
For all further logins this did not happened anymore.
Then I'm clueless, because the python2.7 module is there, and according to your backtrace, gnome is using the new python2.7 and not the old python2.6 from fc13.
I'd say, if you can reproduce this again, let us know.
If not, I'd ignore this...
Hope that's ok.
Christoph: your opionion?

Both this and bug 650017 involve gnome panel applets that are implented in PyGTK failing to import a module, in both cases on the first time logging into F14 after an upgrade from F13.
CCing gnome-panel maintainer. Ray: is there some special logic that runs the first time that a panel is run after an upgrade?
I'm not sure if PyGTK panel applets are implement in-process or out-of-process. If the former, I can envisage a failure mode in which a running gnome-panel process has libpython2.6 linked into it, and this would thus be looking in the "2.6" paths, rather than "2.7". Though that's pure speculation at this point.

gnome-applet-timer-2.1.4-1.fc14 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 14.
Can you please try the new version? There also is 2.2 beta at
gnome-applet-timer-2.1.4-1.fc14 has been pushed to the Fedora 14 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
OS Release: Fedora release 14 (Laughlin)
How to reproduce
1. Sorry dunno. Crash occurs at startup.

> Package: gmixer-1.3-17.fc13
> OS Release: Fedora release 14 (Laughlin)
the fc13 build uses python 2.6 but on fc14 is only python 2.7, so you need to properly update the system and that's it...
OS Release: Fedora release 14 (Laughlin)
How to reproduce
1. At startup.
Reassigning to gnome-panel maintainer for further investigation. However I'm not sure if it is a gnome-panel problem since gmixer is not an applet but has a tray icon.
Ray, please take care of comment 7.

@Dave: I think the problem is in python itself and not in gnome-panel. We are having similar reports for programs that have nothing to do with the panel, for example in bug 06783. Are you fine with reassigning this bug to python or pygtk2?

Sorry, that was supposed to be bug 706783.
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
