This is not really a bug, but a feature :-). Blinkies usually
work with speech at that rate. Everything below is a pain to work with.
I agree though that this should be somehow configurable in Gnopernicus, didn't
find such a setting yet.

What I observed today is that when I tried to launch nautilus,
it complained that the libgail-gnome module was not installed.
After checking, I saw that it was really not installed.
Well, unfortunately, I realized that I still had your hacked libatk1.0-1
packages, and did a cleanup. After that, strangely, nautilus
no longer complains about a missing libgail-gnome module.
I'm wondering now, should gnopernicus depend on libgail-gnome-module,
or is this just an ancient left-over?

I'm using gnopernicus 0.3.2 now (which is available
as tarball. I'm not sure if 0.3.2 is that good, or
if only the setting of the accessibility gconf key was the reason,
but if you find time, maybe you could do a new upload of 0.3.2?
OTOH, if you want to get rid of gnopernicus, I *think* I *might*
be able to aadopt it now. At least the build of 0.3.2 with your debian/
dir went fine without any problems :)
