Orca gnome_segv (was Re: "no focus" and hangs.)

Hi Javier:

There is a nasty bug in gtk+ (see
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=326362) that can cause
gnome-panel to crash when accessibility is enabled and you bring up the
"Run Application" dialog with Alt+F2.  When this happens, you can end up
in a long series of dialogs that say:

'The Application "gnome-panel" has quit unexpectedly.

 You can inform the developers of what happened to help 
 them fix it.  Or you can restart the application right now.'

The dialog is being presented by /usr/lib/libgnomeui-0/gnome_segv2,
which shows up as /usr/lib/libgnomeui-0/gnome_segv in a ps listing.
I've tested out whether killing it from a virtual console works, and it
seems to do the trick.  So...the next time you get what appears to be a
hang, see if you can check for this process and kill it if it exists.
I'd be interested if that helps at all.

Hi to all

Willie, my system is a updated Ubuntu dapper drake, with latest 
Orca cvs head, and the hangs comes in any application, specially when 
changing between windows, pressing alt + tab, alt + f2 when Orca gets 
"no focus" it hangs and I have to kill it. I always kill the 
synthesis-driver too. I think i am a perfect killer :-)

I will try to do more testing to determine the hang.
