Comment 40 for bug 203527

I had this problem on a fully updated upgrade of 8.04 LTS which I performed on 4/26 using the main server. The date/time applet did not display weather and left-clicking on it would freeze gnome. I do not use google calendar or evolution. The problem went away immediately when I set a location on the applet preferences - weather information is now displayed and left-clicking no longer freezes gnome. Initially the show weather/show temperature options were checked on the general tab of preferences, but nothing was set in the locations tab.
