Well, I installed statnot from the AUR (had to slightly modify the PKGBUILD by taking out a line or it wouldn't make, that's another story though) and I get this when trying to run statnot:

Unhandled exception in thread started by <function message_thread at 0x7f05def50758>
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/statnot", line 204, in message_thread
File "/usr/bin/statnot", line 58, in update_text
first_line = text.splitline()[:-1]
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'splitline'

I've read about people having similar errors with the 'split' attribute, and supposedly the 'right' way to do it in that case was to instead import string, and do string.split(var, ) which I believe was the split delimiter. Regardless, statnot doesn't die at this point, it instead hangs and doesn't do anything, even when notify-send is called. I'm on the following:
statnot 0.0.4-1
python2 2.7.2-4

Yeah. I don't know how it's been so long before someone noticed. Thanks for a properly written bug description!
