Any Ubuntu / GNOME / fd.o developers on this list reading this? Is this
possible to do in project Utopia so users don't have to do trouble
shooting like this? I used quite some time to figure it out. First I had

#11401 before that), then I had to figure out this last thing.

Thread in ubuntu-users.
