	What happens if you run the applet by itself ? does the
bonobo_activation_register thing succeed ? if not you should exit. If
that's the case - you didn't install the .server file in the right place
and/or b-a-s didn't notice it there. Try killall -9
bonobo-activation-server [ this will have somewhat wierd effects until
you re-start the desktop incidentally ].

be to have a hack a b-a-s for me to redirect stderr / stdout to a string
