Just for the record, and I have no idea if it is relevant, but Synaptic
also makes the main Synaptic window and/or its menu items inaccessible
for the sighted people after pressing buttons. This is meant as feedback
that Synaptic is busy. Maybe this behavior has something to do with the
bug at hand (the one in AT-SPI2 I mean).

And I would still appreciate feedback on my package.

@Joanmarie, did you get any feedback on the Orca list?
