    g_set_prgname() called multiple times

    ...anyone else seen this terminal output when starting Thunderbird and Firefox? Seems to have happened after some updates yesterday (I think it's related to some of the glib updates). Anyone have a fix?

    Yes. It's due to the unstable version (2.22.3-0ubuntu1) of libglib2.0-0.
    You can use Synaptic Package Manager to downgrade libglib2.0-0 and libglib2.0-data to the previous version (2.22.2-0ubuntu1).
    Mark the package you want to downgrade, and choose "Force version ..." from "Package" on the main menu. Select the previous version and it is done.

    How soon will this be fixed?
    Until the release of Ubuntu 10.4?
    Just wondering.

    I actually get three warnings. I dont know if they're related.

    Code:
    process:2996): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
        Using the fallback 'C' locale.
    
    (firefox:2996): GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times
    
    Gdk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
        Using the fallback 'C' locale.
    edit:

    OK, I tried to downgrade libglib2.0.0 and it downgraded successfully. however now I couldn't start firefox at all. not even from the gnome desktop. it would say "starting firefox" at the bottom,disappear, then nothing would happen. typing firefox in a terminal did nothing, not even any error messages.

    at this point I upgraded libglib again and reinstalled all my firefox packages from synaptic package manager. now everything works fine with the latest libglib2.0.0.
    I can launch firefox from a terminal without any GTK, GDK warnings. still get the glib warning but firefox works fine anyway both from the shell and gnome menu.
