Bug Description

Binary package hint: gdm

It seems every time I strike a key or use a mouse button an 'OK' string gets added to my xsession-errors file.

I'm using latest Jaunty Alpha 3 with all updates installed. The xserver is running with latest nvidia-glx-180 binary driver and ignoreABI option.

Can I provide any further information?

No, I'm not sure.

Is there a way to figure out what's adding the OKs?

could you add your .xsession-errors to the bug? when are those messages displayed exactly? gdm writes to system logs and not to the user one

I have already added my .xsession-errors, see: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/21292497/.xsession-errors
I add the one from today to this comment.

I open my erros-file with gedit, unfocus the gedit window, click around in random windows, e.g. firefox or nautilus, go back to gedit and have to reload the file and there are some OKs more. Just minimizing and maximizing gedit also adds one, sometimes two.

Any idea?

Now I'm sure gdm isn't filling up my .xsession-errors.

Instead this is a screenlets issue. When a screenlet is configured to start automatically after login, no logfile is specified and its log messages are added to the .xsession-errors file and not to their destinated ones.

I'm not a Pyhton man but perhaps autostarted screenlets should log into /dev/null since some of them are producing many log messages in a short period of time.

Patch included should fix the problem.
An updated version will be available in my PPA (https://launchpad.net/~gilir/+archive/unstable). You need to remove and recreate the autostarts.
