you can use a bonobo-activation query where you test whether _active is
true or false (see I can try to write the correct query this evening (evening == 18:00 UTC) if you want.

If you have a reference to a Bonobo object corresponding to the old
rhythmbox, it won't work with the new rhythmbox process, you need to
acquire a new one, ie you need to detect one way or another that the old
reference you have is no longer valid. The various RPC calls will
probably fail if you are using the old Bonobo object, so in that case
you should be able to try to get a new reference.

Hope that helps,
