    GActionGroupExporter: flush queue on requests · 865ce79c
    Allison Karlitskaya authored
    In order to maintain a logical stream of events, we need to make sure we
    flush and queued change notifications before responding to any requests
    for information from clients.
    
    If we don't do this, it's possible that we emit an 'add' event that was
    queued at the time of a 'DescribeAll' call _after_ the reply to that
    call (which already contained the description of the new action).
    
    In practice, this is not only logically incorrect, but it can also cause
    problems.  If a change to action 'state' or 'enabled' occurs after the
    DescribeAll but before the signal has been dispatched, it will be
    ignored because an 'add' signal is already pending.  When that add
    signal is sent, it will contain the correct data, but the receiver will
    ignore it because it already saw the action in the DescribeAll reply.
