gnome-volume-control-applet.desktop failed to register before timeout

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-media

gnome-media 2.25.1-0ubuntu1 on Jaunty x86-64. I get these:

x-session-manager[5862]: WARNING: Application 'gnome-volume-control-applet.desktop' failed to register before timeout

I believe it is the cause of excessive startup time in Jaunty. The expected behavior is that I do not get these errors and startup is fast.

My sound hardware is 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)

that's a gnome-session issue rather than an applet one

Hi Sebastien,

I think this is actually a bug in the applet. The applet starts in the "Panel" phase, so is meant to signal to gnome-session when it has done loading, but it doesn't appear to do that. Incidentally, I think this same issue is causing a race between the panel and the applet, which sometimes causes the applet to not display.

I opened this issue upstream:
