Hmm... Still seeing spew:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/revelation", line 206, in <lambda>
    action.connect("activate",		lambda w: self.prefs())
  File "/usr/bin/revelation", line 1527, in prefs
    dialog.run_unique(Preferences, self, self.config)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/revelation/", line
1324, in run_unique
    d = create_unique(dialog, *args)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/revelation/", line
1282, in create_unique
    UNIQUE_DIALOGS[dialog] = dialog(*args)
  File "/usr/bin/revelation", line 1623, in __init__
  File "/usr/bin/revelation", line 1762, in __init_section_password
    ui.config_bind(self.config, "passwordgen/punctuation",
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/revelation/", line
182, in config_bind
    id = cfg.monitor(key, cb_get, widget)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/revelation/", line
150, in monitor
    callback(key, self.get(key), userdata)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/revelation/", line
129, in get
    raise ConfigError

Here is what I did:

1. I 'rpm -Uvh --force' the new package.
2. I 'recovered' my old ~/.gconf/apps/revelation/ settings (I had
saved them by moving them to revelation.old before updating/testing
with the previous test build).
3. I rebooted and started revelation
4. Edit->Preferences

I'm guessing if I nuke the ~/.gconf/apps/revelelation/ dir and
reboot/etc. it will work...
