GNOME "Urgent" Hint

Does anyone else have a problem with the "urgent" hint (the hint that makes the taskbar blink for example when you get a new instant message in Gaim/Pidgin) where it will just stop working? I have had this happen in Slackware 10.* and 11, Fedora 5 and 6, and RHEL 4. In Pidgin, as well as Gaim, I have made sure countless times that the Message Notification plugin option is selected but it still won't blink. Is there anything I can do to get this working again? Maybe a setting I can reset in gconf-editor? Thanks for any help.

Is it possibly a problem that the version of GNOME where is issue is arising is 2.8.0?

what it does is make the gaim icon blink in the system tray, not on the taskbar


gaim, gnome, pidgin
