Yesterday I reported a bug where orca starts itself while you answer the
initial set up questions. Well I seem to have tracked down the cause,
but I could do with a little nudge as to the preferred way of solving it.
Essentially the problem is that if you answer yes to the autostart orca
question, the orca setup code sets three gconf keys in a certain order.
Unfortunately the order orca sets these keys seems to let the startup
.desktop files execute orca at the point the final key is set (I have
observed this else where, eg. the start up sound when you enable a sound
A little bit of playing about with a live distribution seems to show
that setting /desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility first works round
the bug, so may be this could be set before asking the question of
automatically start orca on log in.
Now the input I want (from someone more familiar with gnome ways) is,
shall I put forward a patch for my suggested fix (doesn't really seem to
sit well with me as it all looks fragile), or should the startup stuff
and interacting with gconf keys be altered (IE. blocking the orca bug).
