User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020718

Description of problem:
Upgraded to gnome-panel- from RawHide (was
gnome-panel-2.0.0-10.i386.rpm from the "Limbo" public beta).  When I start GNOME
I get the error:

There was a problem loading applet 'OAF11D: GNOME_SystemTrayApplet'
Details: g_module_open of `/usr/lib/libsystem-tray-applet.so' failed with
 `/usr/lib/libsystem-tray-applet.so: cannot open shared object file:
 No such file or directory'

Yet, when I look for `/usr/lib/libsystem-tray-applet.so' I see this:
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root        26280 07-24 00:02 libsystem-tray-applet.a
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root         1208 07-24 00:02
libsystem-tray-applet.lalrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           30 07-27 11:31
libsystem-tray-applet.so -> libsystem-tray-applet.so.0.0.0
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           30 07-27 11:31
libsystem-tray-applet.so.0 -> libsystem-tray-applet.so.0.0.0
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        32743 07-24 00:02

(that's poorly formatted, but basically, I see the library it claims is missing).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to GNOME
2. Error message window pops up with above message

Actual Results:  GNOME error about not able to load system tray applet.  Does
not crash GNOME, but an irritating problem.

Expected Results:  system tray applet should have loaded

Additional info:

Interestingly, I cannot 'ls' the file when I look for /usr/lib/libsystem* but I
can 'ls' the file when I look for /usr/lib/*system*

[root@lemur root]# cd /usr/lib/
[root@lemur lib]# ls libsystem*
ls: libsystem*: No such file or directory
[root@lemur lib]# ls *system*
libsystem-tray-applet.a   libsystem-tray-applet.so.0
libsystem-tray-applet.la  libsystem-tray-applet.so.0.0.0

Yet there aren't any binary characters in the name:

[root@lemur lib]# ls -bF *system*
libsystem-tray-applet.a    libsystem-tray-applet.so.0@
libsystem-tray-applet.la*  libsystem-tray-applet.so.0.0.0*
Comment 1 Jim Hall 2002-07-27 13:48:51 EDT
This is not the fault of gnome-panel.  One of the other GNOME rpms I updated on
my system from RawHide is looking for /usr/lib/libsystem-tray-applet.so instead
of /usr/lib/system-tray-applet/libsystem-tray-applet.so

That's why /usr/lib/libsystem* and /usr/lib/*system* gave different results ..
the libsystem-tray-applet.so is in a subdir.

In  gnome-panel-2.0.0-10.i386.rpm  (from "limbo" public beta):

# rpm -qpl gnome-panel-2.0.0-10.i386.rpm |grep system-tray
warning: /tmp/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/gnome-panel-2.0.0-10.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA
signature: NOKEY, key ID 897da07a

In the gnome-panel- (RawHide as of this morning 7/27):

# rpm -ql gnome-panel|grep system-tray
