To me the whole "set your font / font colour" approach seems like "we don't
read your GTK+ theme properly". I can't think of a time when I needed to
change my clock font (albeit I'll admit to it being more useful for
André, try and get in touch with the Design SIG people for the settings UI.
I can't work on any FOSS until the 15th but Simon might be able to help?
Nick, I agree my approach to fixing this bug is quite ugly... The patch is
available for those who're bothered, though.
XFPM maintainers, can XFPM reliably (e.g. also on *BSD) inform processes
that the computer has been resumed? That'd allow getting the information
through without causing 59 interrupts like my solution?
