Description of problem:
The redhat-config-network GUI hangs when trying to save changes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start redhat-config-network
2. Edit eth0. Check/uncheck some option.
Actual Results: redhat-config-network sits there frozen. GUI is frozen: will
not refresh when the window is obscured and restored. Top shows 90% CPU usage.
Expected Results: redhat-config-network should update my network configuration.
I recently removed pump and dhcpcd packages from my system (leftover from prior
RH versions) and installed dhclient.
do you run redhat-config-network on a remote machine?
Not in this case. Everything's local.

The file is long because of the presence of a large /etc/hosts file (used to
