Description of problem:
When attempting to run redhat-config-xfree86 I get the following error message:

[root@Xwing redhat-config-xfree86]# ./redhat-config-xfree86
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-xfree86/xconf.py", line 406, in ?
    dialog = xConfigDialog.XConfigDialog(hardware_state, xconfig, vc)
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-xfree86/xConfigDialog.py", line 327, in __init__
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-xfree86/xConfigDialog.py", line 50, in setup_ui_resolution
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'current' referenced before assignment

I am running an old TNT RIVA video card and a NEC MultiSync FE700 monitor. I've run this against the 2.4 kernel that came with Fedora and 2.6.0-test9. It fails the same way every time. I recently upgraded to Fedora-test3 from RH 8.0.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run /usr/share/redhat-config-xfree86/redhat-config-xfree86

Actual Results:  The Error message described above

Expected Results:  Start the X Configurator

1280x1024 monitor on fresh test3 install.
