gnome-panel takes 100% cpu after a few seconds

Bug #20198 reported by Hervé Cauwelier (bug tracking)
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-panel (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Updated breezy today with all the updates from the week-end and rebooted. Now
gnome-panel takes 100% a few seconds after it started. Killing it is ok but it
will eat all CPU soon again.

The only change apart from new packages I know, is adding a DSDT (ACPI) table to
my ramfs initrd image. But I doubt it is related.

I feel it is hard to given, especially given that gnome-panel restarts
automatically. I have ubuntu-{desktop,standard,minimal} if it matters.

I think this is related to the battery status applet. I have just unplugged the
cord and battery status applet crashed along with the panel. I feel this bug
could be closed with the next days, with packages and my ACPI issue
stabilisation. Or reowned to dbus or related package.

Never experienced it again... I'll reopen the report at worst.
