Ever since my upgrade to Natty Narwhal, applets (e.g, clock, weather indicator, indicator applet.) will crash the second I reach the desktop after logging into Ubuntu Classic. Which one is rather random, but it's always at least one or more of those. Is this a known bug, or is there something wrong with my system?

probably a bug with indicator-applet – Uri Herrera May 21 '11 at 6:33
Would that affect all three of them though? I don't use the complete indicator-applet. – Alan May 21 '11 at 6:36
they are part of the package so i guess it does – Uri Herrera May 21 '11 at 6:43

It seems this bug has been reported before:

Your information seems to be useful since the bug was closed due to lack of information (given the number of people who reported themselves as affected I don't believe this should have happened).

You could try to reinstall the packages:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall indicator-applet indicator-messages indicator-sound
