Hi all
I have found something that might be of interest for edgy users and 
accessibility. As previously stated, things start acting weird when 
accessibility is turned on. When I do so, and attempt to displayt he 
applications menu with ALT + F1, I see the applications menu constantly 
flicker. It is impossible to arrow through it. The other menus seem 
fine. I also noticed the gnome-panel process hitting 59.60% CPU usage.

I have confirmed this on two machines, and what is more puzzling, is 
that it is a damn nucence to get things back the way they were, i.e 
gnome-panel running normally, and no flickering applications menu, and 
this is after completely removing all gnome related files from both my 
home directory, and the /tmp directory. I even completely removed 
gnome-panel, and gnome-panel-data, and re-installed them, just to be 
sure. However, no dice.

This is pretty much the latest edgy, although I am using a local mirror, 
which takes a few hours to receive the latest from the official 

Hope this helps.
