	Ok; it's possible you're inches from getting it working. You need to
ensure that accessibility is enabled for the desktop.

	One of the best ways to do this is to export GNOME_ACCESSIBILITY=1
before you run anything - ensure you run bonobo-slay before doing that
to make sure bonobo-apps get it. Alternatively [ since the env-var ways
are pretty ugly ] there is a better way:

$ gconftool --set --type=bool /desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility 1

that all new gnome applications, whether bonobo activated or not will
turn up with accessibility enabled.
