Bug Description

When i run grsync, it replaces the title from the active application with it's own text (a running status).
In the picture attached, the active window is epiphany,but the title is from grsync which is running at the same time.

Intrepid, installed from the PPAs.

Does this happen everytime you run grsync, or was it a one-off? If it's the latter case, I wonder if it's something to do with wnck not getting a correct title from the active window, and the applet not dealing with that correctly.

It happens every time. What i've seen is that it sometimes doesn't
happen at once when switching to the other window, but a few seconds
into it (when grsync tries to update the title?).
If there's something i can do to collect the reported info, i could do
it.

I don't think it's related, but just in case, i don't run the big
buttons thing, i use my normal desktop. That causes some weirdness when
closing or minimizing apps, with the title in the applet going out of
sync until I click on the desktop or somewhere else.
