Description of problem:
I ran

  up2date --nosig

with a up2date version 3.1.35-something when version 3.1.46-2 was available in
the channel.  I got helpfully asked whether I first want to reinstall up2date. 
I did this and up2date restarted fine.

But during the download the popups telling me about unknown keys appear.  They
should have been avoided since the initial up2date invocation used --nosig and
this option should have been passed to the new invocation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install old  up2date
2.update from channel with binaries using unknown key; start up2date
with --nosig parameter
3.agree to install up2date and restart
4.continue installing

Actual Results:  Popups asking about keys appear.

Expected Results:  Initial --nosig should be respected.

I belive this should be fixed in later versions (argv list was getting
wiped by the gui). It should now be preserved between invocations.
Comment 2 Ulrich Drepper 2003-10-06 19:58:53 EDT
Haven't seen the problem ever since.  Assumed to be fixed.
