I have confirmed that the double definition does exist in the 0.3 glade file, though it didn't refuse to run for me. Strange how intermittent this problem seems to be...

Anyway, I'm working on putting a fix into the 0.3 branch right now.

All we need now is to upload a new deb to the PPA, and all of our users will get the update. I love package management.

I'm experiencing a similar problem in version 1.02. I can't start Caffeine and get the following message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/caffeine", line 38, in <module>
    import caffeine

    generic = icon_theme.load_icon("application-x-executable", 16, gtk.ICON_LOOKUP_NO_SVG)
glib.GError: Icon 'application-x-executable' not present in theme

Any idea what's wrong?
