I have the next step.. a missing rhn. The application is running, but
there is absolutely no icon showing up on the bar. I have looked for any
file in my .??* that mentions rhn and removed them. I cleaned up as much
as I can, rebooted, relogged in and ran rhn-applet-gui. It says it is
running, but it does not do anything the panel. It doesnt write a
.rhn-cache either... just stis in a poll/gettimeofdaty/ioctl/write loop
according to strace.
It seems to be reading stuff from the network, taking up the cpu and
growing in size.. but not allocating any window space. Dont know how to
debug it much furhter.

I got it, will try to reproduce this today. Still I puzzled,
I don't see anything in the code which could explain why the cache
state can influence the rendering, *except* if it is a bug raised
under load condition, then rebuilding the cache generates a lot
of I/O though the rpm database, which added to the load associated to
starting the desktop might create the conditions to raise that problem.
If it's a race condition in the inter-process communication interface
between the applet and the applet container running in the toolbar then
having a lot of I/O might generate proper condition for the problem.
It would be interesting to see if you get the same problem with little
load, for example once in the session, assuming the applet didn't display
correctly, what happen if you kill the applet and restart it with
"killall rhn-applet-gui ; rhn-applet-gui &"
is the display still broken ?
