I am using Ubuntu 11.10 and Gwibber/Broadcast has started appearing twice in my notification menu as shown in the attached image:

enter image description here

On a related note, even with the option to start Gwibber at log is unchecked, Gwibber still starts. I have tried uninstalling Gwibber but when I reinstall it still reverts back to what I see above. When I look at system monitor I can see three instances of gwibber-service running, but I do not know if that is related.

Regarding Broadcast appearing twice in the notification menu the problem seemed to be "unity-lens-gwibber". Uninstalling the gwibber lens removed the second broadcast account. But now Gwibber will not start at login with the box ticked. If that persists then I will add manually to the start-up applications list.
