Description

I have blogged about this situatuion in my blog. Here is the blog post-->http://hammered999.wordpress.com/2010/03/11/startup-notification-system-and-gtkmm/

What basically happens is this:

Let's say that the user is already downloading a torrent using deluge. Then the user double-clicks a new torrent. The new instance of deluge passes the data to the old instance and quits. The old instance presents itself and displays the appropriate dialog. There's one step missing though. The new instance before quiting it should use the equivalent of gdk_startup_notify_complete() to signal that it has loaded successfully.

This will make the entry in the task bar disappear(the one that tells "starting deluge"). Otherwise if a user adds several torrents one-after-the-other the task bar becomes busy pretty quickly. For more info please see my blog post.

Thank you for your awesome torrent client.
