Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: deskbar-applet

When I change panel background from "none" to some color (doesn't matter
if it is transparent or not), deskbar crashes and shows the following

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/deskbar/ui/cuemiac/Cuemiac.py", line 667, in on_change_background
    style.bg_pixmap[gtk.STATE_NORMAL] = pixmap
TypeError: can only assign a GdkPixmap or None

It happens for many different themes. This error pops up also at login,
sometimes making deskbar unusable. Sometimes deskbar remains usable, but
its background does not change (i.e. if I have blue panel and change it
into red panel, deskbar remains on blue background).

** Affects: deskbar-applet (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Untriaged
         Status: Unconfirmed
