I'm not really sure why all these additional packages are necessary.
I am guessing you are a KDE user though. :)

The only explicit dep beagle-thunderbird has is on MozillaThunderbird.
 It does require beagle-gui though, because Thunderbird has no way to
display an addressbook contact externally, and the tool to do that
lives in beagle-gui.

beagle-gui, in turn, only explicitly requires gconf-sharp2,
glade-sharp2, glib-sharp2, gtk-sharp2.  These are all only Mono
bindings for GNOME libraries, and shouldn't require bringing in things
like gnome-desktop, gnome-main-menu, metacity, etc.

So I think there is something else wrong in the chain here at a lower
level in the GNOME stack.  Is there a way with zypper to see why
dependencies are being pulled in?

Joe
