Maybe the indicator-weather icon is broken, and so it's not possible to tell when it's sunny?

We're going to add a simple hack - if smspillaz is logged in then show 'Zzz' icon

Could somebody prepare a mockup for new icon?

AFAIK, this is a regression (it was not happening some weeks ago).

summary: - smspillaz fails to sleep at proper hours, despite solar status
+ [regression] smspillaz fails to sleep at proper hours, despite solar
+ status

In fact this bug is very critical: since the bug appeared Unity keeps logging me out : saying the proper hours for sleeping are not set.

I think this is a bug in compiz. There's so much bling that it simulates solar patterns and thus the body is never able to adjust its internal clock.

In order to fix this we'll need to turn paint-fire on by default

So I think didirocks would not be capable to build Unity with this bug.

Update : Compiz with Paint-fire turn ON burns my GPU . Oneiric will not be released on time
may be the whole Distro is affected by this bug

I've seen this behaviour in micahg also, so it may be worth checking if they share a common wakeup event handler or something...

One of the worst affected by this bug is jjohansen; I suspect copy-and-waste code may be to blame.

So the Design team won't help us to design a proper work flow for Sams ? That just means Unity would stop running as it depends on Compiz.

If this bug doesn't get fixed in time, I'll move to arch for good!

Why is this marked "Fix Committed" in Compiz? I managed to reproduce this bug using irssi running on top of the latest linux kernel, latest Xorg from xorg-edges AND the latest compiz & unity from trunk! Sam was still online, so its definitely not fixed yet!

It's possible this bug may be automatically resolved by the time 12.04 is released. The solar status should reach a threshold that causes a steady feedback loop to avoid the symptoms described in the bug description...

I personally think this bug is related only to "sam's mom" package, maybe forwarding it upstream? :)
