I've managed to fix this problem, but it is pretty ugly. Somehow
python2.3 and python2.4 and gnome stuff is not playing well together. I
am not sure why.
This is what I did to fix it:
- Change first line of /usr/bin/revelation to explicitly use python2.4.
- Change first line of /usr/share/revelation/libexec/revelation-applet
to explicitly use python2.4.
- Copy the file /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gnome/applet.py
- Created empty file
Any better long-term solution would be greatly appreciated.

Python2.4 was installed as part of this upgrade, but /usr/bin/python
still points to 2.3. Current version of 2.3 is Python 2.3.5 (#2, Jun

It seems to me that all packages required are in
/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages, so I am not sure what is causing the
