cryptkeeper crashes while switching user on lucid

Bug Description

Cryptkeeper 0.9.4 on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx (final release)

1. log-in as user A open cryptkeeper which stays iconized on the tray
2. create a new encfs folder or mount an older one through the icon menu
3. unmount the encfs folder through the icon menu
4. switch user living cryptkeeper opened without any folder mounted
(I think to remember it's the same if I even quit the icon)
5. log-in as user B open cryptkeeper which stays as icon in the tray

now we can have two behaviours:
A) user B creates a new encfs folder through the icon menu.
after creation the folder is mounted crashing down the cryptkeeper icon.
If we open cryptkeeper again the icon will stay on the tray but the new folder won't be listed.
No way to unmount it. It stays mounted if I terminate the session and log-in again as user B.
On rebooting the folder is not mounted, opening cryptkeeper will create the icon tray
but the new encrypted folder won't be listed. The only chance to mount it maybe is to import it (not tested)

B) user B mounts an already created encfs folder listed in the icon menu.
after creation the folder is mounted crashing down the cryptkeeper icon.
Same behaviour as before of the mounted folder (it's unmounted only on rebooting)
but now if we try to open cryptkeeper, it stays iconized on the tray and right-button is still available
but it will crash again and again at any left-click on it.


affects: ubuntu → cryptkeeper (Ubuntu)

I too have the same problem..

Icon is present on the tray and crashes or disappears when I left click.

Right click causes no problem...
