Description Will Woods 2008-01-29 13:24:17 EST
I caused a traceback in anaconda-11.4.0.27 (see bug 428891), but rather than
popping up the traceback window and generating anacdump, anaconda simply hung.

It turns out there was a traceback in sys.excepthook, which follows:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1062, in <lambda>
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/exception.py", line 407, in handleException
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1101, in mainExceptionWindow
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 983, in __init__
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 907, in __init__
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 413, in findGladeFile
RuntimeError: Unable to find glade file detailed-dialog.glade

/mnt/runtime/usr/share/anaconda/ui/detailed-dialog.glade does exist and is readable.

We can't display a useful exception message here, but we can at least log an
error and not traceback.  I hope that's good enough.
