exaile-0.2.10-r1 won't start with a dbus error.  I re-emerged exaile but it did not change the error. Here it is:

$ exaile
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 27, in <module>
    import xl.dbusinterface

  File "//usr/share/exaile/xl/", line 41, in DBusInterfaceObject
    @dbus.service.method("org.exaile.DBusInterface", "s")
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/dbus/", line 24, in decorator
    in_sig = tuple(dbus_bindings.Signature(in_signature))
  File "dbus_bindings.pyx", line 84, in
TypeError: exceptions must be strings, classes, or instances, not type

- media-sound/exaile-0.2.11_beta
- if you have upgraded python recently, run python-updater
- re-emerge dbus-python

Getting back to a functioning python-2.4 after upgrading to 2.5 was nightmarish.  python-updater doesn't seem to work for downgrading.  I'm happy with quodlibet.  Lemme know if I'm missing out on something really cool though.
