gmailwatcher crashes

Bug Description

On my Maverick install I recently install gmailwatcher (from PPA). I realised that gmailwatcher kept closing (without notfying me that it was closing and no longer monitoring messages). I decided to run from the terminal so I could monitor for output.

Seeing as the error message is also mentioned in Bug #645193 which says the cause was about the keyring, I should mention I had the "Don't use keyring" tickbox clicked and nothing in the textbox below.

I got this output:

greg@greg-maverick:~$ gmailwatcher
ERROR:gkr-operation.c:401:gkr_operation_block_and_unref: assertion failed: (op->pending != pending)

Thank you Greg.

I'm currently working on something else, but I'll change the behavior so that keyring is accessed from outside the thread.
Will probably fix next week.

Does this happen every time you try to start the app or does it work sometimes?

If you are unable to use it, you can edit the settings manually to make it work without using keyring.

go to file:///home/USERNAME/.local/share/desktop-couch/couchdb.html in your browser and find GmailWatcher db.
Then edit the 'keyring_false' item and make it true.

that should fix it for now.

Thank you for the really fast reply Owais. I changed my settings to use the keyring so your work around isn't really necessary, for the minute anyway.

I'm afraid the workaround isn't working for me.

I'm marking this invalid as gmailwatcher now has a complete new codebase. Will be uploading to a ppa soon.
