Bug Description

Glimpse fails to start on my computer (Ubuntu 11.04 32bit):

andrei@andrei-desktop:~$ /usr/bin/glimpse
sn_launcher_context_complete called for an SnLauncherContext that hasn't been initiated
lsof: WARNING: can't stat() fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon file system /home/andrei/.gvfs
      Output information may be incomplete.
/usr/bin/glimpse: line 37: Error:: command not found

Please note that I do not use an encrypted home folder.

Sounds like an outdated Gaffel... which is weird.

Whole Natty is a Big Bad Bug. Try it on Ubuntu Maverick XD

Hmm. Are you sure you have a sandbox profile installed?

This issue seems to happen only on Natty, which makes me think it's a Gaffel bug...
I've tracked it down to this piece of code: http://pastebin.com/yucWL7Dd
(IRL "> somefile" is "| gaffel")

And... I've tracked it down to a Gaffel bug because the output from Natty works on Maverick's Gaffel, and it's compliant with the specs.

Looks like there's a REALLY outdated version of Gaffel used in Natty... I have no idea how could it happen. An update will land in ~30 min.

The thing is... it worked in Natty in VirtualBox so I don't think that's it. But I'll wait for the update...

This bug is caused by Gaffel outputting "Error: <something>" to stdout instead of the return value from the UI. AFAIR those are libxml parsing errors.
