For future reference, bugs specific to cairo-clock need to go into the Awn Extras bug tracker, as that is where cairo-clock is distributed.

When you activate a new instance of cairo-clock in awn-settings, does it crash immediately?

Are there other applets which crash with the same error? Check weather, volume-control, thinkhdaps, yama, quit.

Everything is working good except the Cairo-clock applet

If other applets except cairo-clock are working then I'm kinda at a loss. Did you update any software when it started happening?

One thing you could try (but if it works, the applets I mentioned should have crashed) is this;

1) open /usr/[local/]lib/python2.6/site-packages/awn/extras/

site-packages may be dist-packages or something on your ubuntu. Use your imagination to find the file.

2) go to line 1579 (near the end of the file) and prepend gobject.threads_init with a #

3) add a new cairo-clock instance via awn-settings

Tell me if cairo-clock keeps crashing.

Marking as "won't fix" since I cannot reproduce it here and there have been no other reports on this issue.
