Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-control-center

Launching the "About Me" dialog from the Me Menu in Lucid should not start multiple instances of gnome-about-me if clicked more than once.

I am attaching a patch that adds unique-app capabilities to gnome-about-me. The patch is against the patched .deb sources and is ready to go in debian/patches... I didn't figure out how to do a debdiff yet - sorry!
