1.57.1. RHBA-2009:1594: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1594
Updated gail packages that resolve an issue are now available.
GAIL, the GNOME Accessbility Implementation Library, implements the abstract interfaces found in the Accessibility Toolkit (ATK) for GTK+ and GNOME libraries, and thereby enables accessibility technologies such as AT-SPI (the Assistive Technology Service Provider Interface) to access GUI elements.
These updated gail packages fix the following bug:
* when starting a GNOME application at the shell prompt, the GAIL library incorrectly printed the following spurious error message when the "GNOME_ACCESSIBILITY" environment variable was set to "0", which disables GNOME accessibility support: "GTK Accessibility Module initialized". With this update, this message no longer appears when the "GNOME_ACCESSIBILITY" environment variable is set to "0". (BZ#506561)
All users of gail are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
