gDesklets still crashes and it has the same symptoms.

I received this error when I deployed my desklet from Ubuntu 8.04 to
8.10 :

"ubuntu at ubuntu:~$

=== Unhandled error! Something bad and unexpected happened. ===

After step by step troubleshooting I found out my bug started because of the switch from Python 2.4 to Python 2.5 and was created because of a "text" tag in one of my svg canvas from my desklet:
Example:
  <text x="250" y="150"
        font-family="Verdana" font-size="55" fill="blue" >
    Hello, out there
  </text>

I think gdesklets crashes when it comes to </text> because with <text
x="250" y="150" font-family="Verdana" font-size="55" fill="blue" /> it
works even though it's empty.
