Bug Description

I was fooling around on precise with hamster 2.91.3+git20110714.9aefd7-2ubuntu2

I started and stopped a few tasks, then edited one, dragging the graphical extent to make it start earlier, as I recall. I might have done other stuff too. Then it crashed and offered to send in a bug report, so I said yes. Here it is. This was in the terminal window where I started it.

/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/hamster/configuration.py:153: GtkWarning: IA__gtk_accel_label_set_accel_closure: assertion `gtk_accel_group_from_accel_closure (accel_closure) != NULL' failed
  ui.add_from_file(os.path.join(runtime.data_dir, name))
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/hamster/widgets/dayline.py", line 186, in on_click
    if start_time > dt.datetime.now():

I can confirm this. The way to reproduce seems to be to modify an entry, then click/drag on the range bar, then go left to right such that the times are the same, then unclick.

This bug was fixed in the package hamster-applet - 2.91.3+git20110714.9aefd7-2ubuntu3

hamster-applet (2.91.3+git20110714.9aefd7-2ubuntu3) precise; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/04-lp926481.patch: if we somehow got a click with no
    selected start_time, then reset the selection but don't update the widget

Hamster is now using github to track bugs.
Rather than being "expired", this issue is now also fixed upstream:

Because of bug 878413, I can't simply enter that above in launchpad as a new upstream bug url for this bug.
