Description Murray Cumming (reporter) 2009-04-20 13:25:59 UTC
Whenever I install a home applet, even if that applet already existed, a new
instance of the applet is added to the current user's desktop. That's rather
annoying, particularly when doing "make install" several times while developing
code for a home applet.

hildon-home is watching a directory but is reacting when a file is just

Fixed for Fremantle.

Fix should be included in Fremantle SDK beta 2 hence updating Target Milestone.
