Public bug reported:

Affects: gnome-panel (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

When entering a non-existant command into the run dialog and pressing
enter, the error message

Could not open location 'file://asd'

Details: Unknown error code: 13

Pops up - that's rather cryptic and non-informative for a random user. I
would expect either a shaking window like in gnome-screensaver or a more
useful message.
