Problem description

This update fixes several issues in draksnapshot:

The draksnapshot applet received the following fixes:

- on desktop startup, it will wait for 30s before checking for
available disc so that notification is positioned at the right place,
on the applet icon
- it prevents crashing if DBus is not reachable, and reports DBus
- it prevents crashing if DBus is active, but HAL is not (#44434)
- if all discs are unmounted, the applet will hide (#41176)
- it prevents running more than once
- it uses HAL in order to detect discs available for backup, thus
fixing detecting some internal SATA discs as discs available for backup

It also uses new icons from Mandriva Linux 2009.0.

The draksnapshot configuration tool also received the following fixes:

- it stops saving config when clicking Close (#39790); one has to
click on Apply in order to save the config
- on first run, it offers backup in mounted disc path, instead of
defaulting to some place in the root filesystem which could previously
be filled up (#39802)
- it no longer offers to configure some obscure advanced options
- it now allows for disabling backups
- it generates anacron-friendly cron files


An updated draksnapshot is now available for Mandriva Linux 2009.0.
