This is strange, I've tried the 0.8.4 packages of Gnopernicus on several
machines and it has always worked for me.  It even ran on the
unofficial AMD64 architecture as a true 64-bit binary.

That is nice to hear.

I've noticed this problem too and it seems to be fairly reproducable.

That is a fairly ugly hack though :-).  I've used the "absolute"
button in the Preferences->Speech->Voices dialog to set the speech
rate to 200, that seemed to work as well.  Does anyone have some
command-line magic handy (gconftool-2 or something) which would
allow to make this fix automatic?  I'd like to put something into
postinst for this.
