Comment 37 for bug 124315

dreamon: See comment #9, and bug #391533 - I did file (a more general version of) this bug against 100 Papercuts. It was initially rejected for the usual storm of glib "somebody else's problem" and "it's a feature, not a bug" reasons, but in the end 100 Papercuts rejected it because it's not simple enough to fix (100 Papercuts is intended to pick off low-hanging fruit, basically).

Somebody else did assign that bug to Ayatana, which I think is a usability project with broader scope/ambition than 100 Papercuts (but accordingly, less chance of things actually happening).
