Description of the change

Here's a better fix for this crasher, following one of mvo's suggestions in my previous MP for this bug. Just added a couple of lines to disable the recommendations opt-in menu item until the UI is actually ready for it.

Thanks again!

Thanks for this fix, its fine and I merged it, but I added a comment and changed:
+ recommendations_menuitem = self.builder.get_object(
+ "menuitem_recommendations")
+ recommendations_menuitem.set_sensitive(True)


+ self.menuitem_recommendations.set_sensitive(True)

because the SimpleGtkbuilderApp that we use will make all widgets available with their names
as attributes of the application, so the call to self.builder is not really needed (will also
do no harm)

I noticed that surrounding code is using a lot of the self.builder.get_object() I'm not sure why
this is the case, maybe older gtk version did not support the menu items as Gtk.Buildable. I will
submit a seperate branch with cleanup for this.

Thanks Michael, that is much nicer indeed! I forgot that is actually just a SimpleGtkbuilderApp.
