Timer Applet

Bug Description

Installed from source 2.2beta1. Only problem during configure was it failed on finding a m4 dir, so created that and then it was fine. Logged out and then add the app to the panel to get the message:

The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:TimerApplet".
Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration?

Went back into the src directory and ran 'timer-applet' but got the following trace:

Using these definitions:
GETTEXT_PACKAGE: timer-applet
RESOURCES_DIR: /usr//share/timer-applet
IMAGES_DIR: /usr//share/pixmaps
Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/tmp/timer-applet/src/timerapplet/ui/", line 25, in ?
    from subprocess import check_call, CalledProcessError
ImportError: cannot import name check_call

Doing a bit of checking it seems that subprocess.check_call was only introduced in Python 2.5, yet the requirement is for >= 2.4.
