xfrun4 (run dialogue) appears twice on first invocation?

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv: Gecko/20070309 Firefox/
Build Identifier: 

if I hit Alt+F2 after loading the window manager, the run dialogue takes at least 5 seconds to appear while eating the CPU (this is a separate issue, but anyway), then appears twice, probably every time.
I haven't tested invoking the dialogue box via other means yet. Is this a known issue or likely to be something I have configured incorrectly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in and start XFCE version (Xfce 4.4 BETA1) [quoted by xfce4-about: note that the beta 1 and minor version number conflicts with those available in the bug report dropdown list]
2. hit Alt-F2
3. wait about 5 seconds...
Actual Results:  
Run dialogue appears twice in succession.

Expected Results:  
Run dialogue appears once!

Running Ubuntu 6.06.1 LTS (Dapper).

I see a glibc-2.3.5 package installed - not sure how to find out which ones apps get linked to in the system... and I think I've libgtk+ 2.0.

I've seen this with Thunar and Terminal too. This is related to DBUS and a timeout set to short.

I believe Benny has increased the timeout in at least Terminal and Thunar, not sure about xfrun.

Any chance that you try the final 4.4.0 release? I've not seen these issues with 4.4.0.

Thanks Olivier,
I'll consider trying 4.4.0 final next weekend if I can figure out how to do it without killing Ubuntu.

Are you still able to reproduce this issue with Xfce 4.6?
