Hello Ronaldo, or anyone else affected,

Accepted into precise-proposed. The package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

This was not fixed in quantal yet, and quantal has a newer version, so we cannot copy from precise-proposed.

there are still more issues lingering in this code, e.g. endless loop on cancel due to channel use after shutdown:

I have many scripts with Zenity, with the update to 12.04 many now don't work, there is no message and CPU usage rises progressively. I was testing with this snippet:

ls -1 * | zenity --list --column="Files" --text="" --title=""

. . always worked in past, not now. No error messages. Have the latest Zenity [3.4.0-0ubuntu3]

when fix will arrive for 12.04, i cannot use UCK because of that.

Updates 3.4.0-0ubuntu4 fixed most of my problems, thanks to developers. Minor quibble is the scale option, mouse wheel used to scroll the bar, not working now, but keyboard still works. Thanks for all the hard work.

I was directed to bug 973361 after a Unity 2D crash. Screen before Unity 2D error:
"Please read /user/share/doc/im-switch/README.Debian.gz
No user configuration enabled for es_ES.
Restart the X session to activate the selected input Method".
Unity 2D fails a lot!
