Yeah, I haven't tried it under unity.  I wonder why Alan Bell didn't come
across the canberra problem when he found the appmenu problem.

Yes, that's what I was thinking.  It's cool that it works.

Okay, that sounds similar to what I've seen.  Definitely broken.  Feel free
to open a bug.  People may or may not be interested in it at this point.

I'd say in all cases of bugs showing up in ubuntu it's best to report them
both against ubuntu in launchpad and the upstream source, preferably
linking them in launchpad.  

I believe I added all your recommendations to the gtk ppa, feel free to let
