[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#378187: xfce4-weather-plugin: Fahrenheit or Imperial temperature is incorrectly the same as Celsius

Package: xfce4-weather-plugin
Version: 0.5-1
Severity: normal

Where I live it's now a little under 60 degrees (Fahrenheit) outside. 
After I just now switched 'xfce4-weather-plugin' from Metric to Imperial,
it prints:

    Observation station located in Maynard, MA
    last update: 7/13/06 10:25 PM EDT.

            Temperature: 18 F
            Windchill: 18 F
            Description: Clear
            Dew point: 18 F

...a winter-ey summer!.  Also attached is a screen capture of the
'Forecast' tab, with the same problem.

Note: after I typed the above, the Fahrenheit display switched to the
correct one, 64 degrees right now.  While I was writing the above my
modem's PPP connection was kept very busy by file transfers and
background jobs.  I'm guessing that X4WP must have been waiting for
some network event before it could display things correctly.  Not as
bad, but still a bug, as it needs no network to convert a temperature.
I'll try to test this later when I'm offline.

Hope this helps...
