This feels broken. What if I have accessibility enabled,
my screen reader not started, but firefox already open?
By enabling accessibility, I told the system already that I will want to use
it. But with such a sneaky check, my screen reader would not be able
to access firefox since it has decided to not use AT-SPI...
Or did I miss something in this mail. It reads like
the check you propose is kind of automatic, if it were a permanent gconf
setting, it would just duplicate the Accessibility-enabled setting, wouldn't
