[Bug 213494] Re: [Hardy] Glipper dies when desktop starting

** Description changed:
I use glipper all the time and I find it to be the clipboard application
that has been missing from Linux desktops for the longest time. In the
recent Hardy development I find that glipper dies when the desktop
starts. I receive the following message in an error dialog window:
The panel encountered a problem while loading OAFIID:Glipper....
The is asks if I want to remove glipper from the panel. I find this
very frustrating. What is more frustrating is that once the desktop is
up and running I can then install the glipper applet back on the panel
and it works properly. I have only installed this as an applet and I
have never tried setting up a custom launcher.

- Possible work around from Bug #205507:
+ Proposed Workaround:
+ So what to do: Look up Glipper and add a wait statement:
- Glipper has moved from being an app to a applet (which is confusing
- enough), however it crashed when I tried to add it to the panel, unless
- I deleted the ~/.glipper directory first.
+ sudo gedit /usr/lib/glipper/glipper
+ Make sure the code in the beginning looks like this:
+ #!/usr/bin/env python
+ # Glipper - Clipboardmanager for GNOME
+ # Copyright (C) 2007 Glipper Team
+ # bla bla bla
+ # License along with this library; if not, write to the
+ # Free Software Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place - Suite 330,
+ # Boston, MA 02111-1307, USA.
+ import time # <-- This line is new
+ time.sleep(8) # <-- This line is new. Change the 8 to for instance 30 if it did not help
+ import gobject
+ import gtk, gnomeapplet, gnome
+ import getopt, sys
+ from os.path import *
+ Proposed Solution(? needs to be verified):
+ Crashing in Intrepid too. It needs to be rebiult againsta libffi5 instead of libffi4
