Strange message from Totem??

Asked by John Winterton on 2012-10-16

john@John-1204LTS:~$ thunderbird

(totem:3280): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: Read/writable property 'object' on class 'ZeitgeistDpPlugin' has type 'TotemObject' which is not exactly equal to the type 'GObject' of the property on the interface 'PeasActivatable'

Description: Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS
Release: 12.04
totem:
  Installed: 3.0.1-0ubuntu21.1
  Candidate: 3.0.1-0ubuntu21.1

Sequence of events:
Mail notify
Open Thunderbird
Incoming mail contained an attached movie file
Opened movie, which ran fine under totem.
Closed totem.
Deleted mail item.
Returned to console from which thunderbird was called.
Message was there.

Just curious, but what is this about? Is it a bug or just an oversight in handling objects?

Clearly some assertion in the program failed, but should it even be turned on in a released program?

I'd report a bug

Be my guest, if you wish. I only noticed this because I started the sequence from a console. It doesn't seem to affect anything. If you think it is worth it, go ahead.
