I agree that this is a bug, but I think it is more of a desktop bug than
an Orca bug -- the desktop should come up with *something* with focus.
Have you tried pressing Ctrl+Alt+Tab to force the desktop icons to get
To work around this problem on startup, you can add an application
(e.g., gnome-terminal, pidgin, any other application you would typically
use when you login) to the start up programs of gnome-session-properties.

It may be that nothing has focus when you first log in. As a result
of this, the AT-SPI infrastructure is unable to capture any keyboard
events, resulting in Orca not knowing anything is happening. :-(
I think you are correct. Alt-Tab gets no speech. If I go to the top
panel (Alt-F1) and then hit escape, I am similarly without speech on
Alt-Tab and I cannot launch the Orca dialogs. However, if I hit Alt-F1
and give the top panel focus, I can launch the Orca dialogs.
If you press Alt+Tab, do you get any speech?
To me, this looks like a bug, but I'm not sure for whom. If the Orca
main window is not open, can focus be passed from Orca to the desktop?
Or, would this cause problems for focusing other applications that are
launched on startup?
