Bug Description

Launching synapse in Arch Linux fails more often than not with the following error:

$ synapse
[INFO 17:08:56.235061] [synapse-main:267] Starting up...
[INFO 17:08:56.457804] [synapse-main:209] Binding activation to <Alt>space

In comparison, a successful launch would be:
$ synapse
