Re: Fedora 14 Beta RC2 (inc. live) available for desktop testing

The traceback I think is to do with a change in dependencies between 
at-spi  and the newer at-spi on dbus (at-spi2). On my debian system 
(using at-spi 1.30.1) I just tried to do the import causing the import 
error and got that error (orca works fine on this debian system). I then 
had a look for the package and found the debian package python-xlib and 
once installed the import works fine. Not being very familiar with the 
fedora packages I am unsure of the fedora package name but the debian 
package says the homepage for the package is

While I think its not causing the traceback, I am concerned by the GTK 
warning about being unable to load the atk-bridge module, as I 
understand it this will break accessibility. Did this module get moved 
with the at-spi2 change?
