Description Tom Horsley 2009-04-04 03:46:49 UTC
Description of problem:

When first starting an install, before it switches to GUI mode, there
are a couple of curses style screens to use to select keyboard layout

They both have lists with scrollbars. The top of the scrollbar shows up
on my system as a lower case e with a circumflex accent, and the bottom
shows up as a lower case n with a cedilla accent.

I could swear these used to be up and down triangle symbols :-).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 Beta DVD iso

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.see above
Actual results:
funny chars

Expected results:
up and down arrows

They did used to be arrow characters, but various changes to the way the loader is built has broken this.  I don't see it as something we're going to get around to any time soon but I guess it's good to be aware of it.
