Bug Description

Normally when we use gnome-do, with the first letters you type in, the application finds what file you want to open, program to launch, action to perform etc. So when I summon gnome-do and type in, eg. "fir", gnome-do usually would come up with "firefox" as it's my most used thing that starts with "fir".

Gnome-do randomly stops doing this recognition and recovers only after I restart it. It doesn't recognise my input (and autocomplete it, show the icon etc.) and does not show any action associated with what I'm typing. So, on the left side of the window is written whatever I have typed and the right side is blank. Of course, there are no options underneath too.
When that happens I have to quit do and restart it.

I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Studio 1555 and the version of gnome-do is

Hi guys:
this also happens to me in this environment:

Ubuntu 10.04
Dell precision M4300

It usually happens when I start my laptop: once I restart gnome-do it never happens again (until the next reboot)

I'm pretty sure I can reproduce this by switching the running WM, so it should be a simple-ish matter of hunting down what's actually happening and fixing it.
