Err, wrong bug, sorry.

xsession-errors does not give info about the app sending this error, but on my system it is logged after i start midori, so it could be one of its dependencies. Strangely the same error is logged repeatly even if i let the system alone without user action, meaning that only the active process in the background can produce this error.

can someone try building a new package with this patch, and see if it fixes things?

(there will still be warnings, but the code should work despite the warnings now)

The patch fixes my rhythmbox/libdmapsharing bug #929133 (dupe of this one). I uploaded test packages to my ppa: https://launchpad.net/~jdstrand/+archive/ppa (amd64 has started building, i386 hasn't yet) if others want to test.
