Lotus Notes (8.5.1) does not work when Orca is configured

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-orca

when I configure my Lucid Installation to use orca, Lotus Notes (8.5.1) does no longer work.

You can login into Lotus Notes, but then any GUI disappears. The process keeps running in the background. This happens although when no orca process is actually running.

I figured out how to solve the problem - but that means that orca is disabled, too. To solve the problem you have to set the gconf key "/desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility" to false (when you configure orca initially, this key will be set to true).

I think this information - and the problem behind - is interesting, because maybe there are other programs with the same or a similar problem.

This is a bug in at-spi. Could you run lotice notes from a terminal, and paste the output you get in the terminal when you attempt to run lotice notes?
