comment Choose password for new keyring
If your system is hanging, I'd guess that the keyring message is not necessarily related to your hang. Does it work on a live cd? Did it ever work before? Is it a fresh install? Are you using Unity? And include links to your system log files (post them on pastie.org).

comment Isn't the calendar applet supposed to show today's date under the clock?
It's correct now. I'll have to check if it happens again tomorrow morning. Could be a timezone craziness?

comment How to move wifi passwords to a new installation
Yes, you're right. network-manager doesn't bother to look in the keychain unless there's a matching uuid in the gconf settings.

Aren't the gconf settings only necessary if you have specific settings for different networks (you used network manager to edit your connection to change MTU, DHPC settings, etc...). All my passwords are stored in my keyring.

comment Why is the icon for the 'copy dialog' indicator a mouse pointer?
After completely my answer I felt very creepy and I'm not sure if I'm reassured or more unsettled to know that we were simultaneously e-stalking. However, I am certain that I'll have a smile on my face for the rest of the day.

You should avoid modifying system files. An update to ubuntu-mono will revert your change.

comment How do I make GVim use the icon in my icon theme?
This is a bug that's now reported fixed. Probably to release in oneiric.

Clarification: "fullpath icon name by the one of the Faenza icon." So Faenza's vim.svg means you should use Icon=vim (don't include the extension). That way it will work for other icon themes that provide an icon for vim.

comment How can I change which icon an applet uses?
For anyone wondering, you can determine that diodon uses gtk-paste from diodon's desktop file. For another application, look for its desktop file in /usr/share/applications. (ex: /usr/share/applications/diodon.desktop) If that exists, look for the line that says Icon=. If it says something like Icon=gtk-paste, then you can change your icon theme to change the icon used. If it says something like Icon=/usr/share/icons/diodon/diodon.png (a file path), then you have to edit diodon.desktop to change the icon, but your change may be overwritten whenever you do an update.
