indicator-me (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

If the indicator-me-service fails and is restarted by the indicator, the indicator entry may trigger a crasher.

Steps to reproduce:
- load the indicator (indicator-lodaer can help for debugging this)
- killall indicator-me-service (it's automatically restarted by running indicators, like the one just started aboe)
- look at the me menu until it says "Post message..." (or killall again until it says "Post message..."
- clock in the entry and start typing something, after the 1 characted the indicator crashes.

The backtrace shows something is failing in ido while routing a signal. It may come from routing a signal to a previous instance of an entry that should have been disposed since.
