Bug Description

Binary package hint: libwnck22

In short; the summary says it all.

Upstream has been notified of the bug and fixed it[1] in the git tree[2]. Attached is a debdiff to fix this issue in Ubuntu 9.04, which I have personally tested and verified that it works. This change will be in libwnck that is distributed with GNOME 2.28, but it would be nice if this change is also applied and released in Ubuntu 9.04 with GNOME 2.26.

The only known application that this affects is new AllTray at lp:alltray, which is not yet in Ubuntu (though is hoped to have a stable release in time for Ubuntu 9.10). The developer of lp:alltray (myself) uses Ubuntu 9.04 at present for testing and development and testers of the application are also largely using Ubuntu 9.04, as far as I am aware.

Thank you for work there but that doesn't seem a candidate for a stable update since it doesn't impact default jaunty users in their daily work, you can use a ppa if you need this fixed version for software testing, next version in karmic is due in less than a week so we will wait for the update there
