Bug Description

After installing Itrepid Beta and installing nvidia drivers with hardware-drivers, I get the following window after clicking on the hardware drivers icon. It repeats the driver ~7 times or so.
The problem itself isnt repeatable, I can't get the same results after starting jockey-gtk again.

See attached screenshot for more information

1) Please post the output of this command:
apt-cache policy jockey-gtk jockey-common

2) type (ignore any error):

sudo killall jockey-backend

sudo rm -R /var/cache/jockey

sudo /usr/share/jockey/jockey-backend --debug

(keep it running in the background)

and post what happens

I'll test it as soon as possible, but the problem itself isn't repeatable. Somehow I can't get the same results. When i launched jockey-gtk for a second time I got the normal jockey-gtk window.

That really looks funny. However, without a recipe for reproducing this there is little we can do, I'm afraid. I keep this as "incomplete". As soon as you found it out, can you please report back here? If you can't let's blame sun radiation and forget about it. :-)

Thanks, Martin

@Martin: Yeah it sure looks funny. I'm aware that you could do nothing with only a screenshot, but i'll try to reproduce it when i've time(reinstalling when final is out)

@Alberto: Here's the output, nothing special.

Unfortunately I can't see the cause of the problem. Feel free to reopen the bug report if you manage to reproduce the problem again.

This was just reported again in bug 280952. I still have no idea how to reproduce it, though.

This happens when clicking on the tray icon multiple times while the application is already open. I can reproduce it now.

I have fixed this bug in revision 480 in my bazaar branch:

Thanks, Alberto. That works, but has the nasty effect that it reinitializes the tree view very often.

I did a different approach now which makes sure to not reinitialize it if it was already, and also added GTK and KDE test cases. KDE is confirmed to be fine.
