Bug Description

% head -n 1 /usr/bin/gwibber-accounts
#!/usr/bin/env python

This is destined to break. It is never a good idea for production code to use /usr/bin/env. Instead, it should use #!/usr/bin/python just like gwibber-service does.

Note that it's okay for the *development* branch to use /usr/bin/env, in fact, it's preferable so that it's easier to develop against alternative Python's. Once deployed though, it must use /usr/bin/python.

gwibber (3.4.1-0ubuntu1) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * New stable release
    - fallback to displaying full sender's name if the nickname is empty, even
      if show-fullname is false (LP: #985801)
    - catch GLib.GError instead of GLib.Error, fixes crasher (LP: #940182)
    - Specify /usr/bin/python in gwibber-accounts instead of relying on
      env (LP: #988385)
    - lens: use category icons that match the rest of unity. This only affects
      the unity-lens-gwibber package in universe.
  * debian/patches/*.patch
    - dropped, merged upstream
  * debian/control
    - Added depends on gir1.2-wnck-3.0, gwibber-accounts needs it (LP: #957272)
