Severity: Unspecified Keywords:

Bug Status: Unconfirmed

Description

TestCase:

  • do the following in a python console to make sure that '/desktop/sugar/desktop/favorites_layout' is not set in gconf:
import gconf
client = gconf.client_get_default()
client.unset('/desktop/sugar/desktop/favorites_layout')
  • run the emulator via ./sugar-jhbuild run sugar-emulator

If the bug is present, the emulator will fail, and the shell.log will look like the attached one.
