But one is not authorized to see bug 107690! Since this is not a
security bug, I guess this makes it unsuitable to mark a fedora bug a
duplicate of a closed bug.
Right, but don't worry I don't forget it. I fixed the problem in CVS
and will try to do a new release soon for testing !
Okay version 2.1.3 should fix this:
thanks for the report

just installed rhn-applet-2.1.3-2 from comment #4
the registration pop-up box is gone. Is this worth putting into update
But i'm still getting some inconsistant behavior between rhn-applet
and up2date with regard to update notification. Though that might be
outside the scope of this bug.
right now up2date shows i need the epic update
but rhn-applet shows blue. And when i click on rhn-applet i get this
message in critical Information:
The applet has been unable to access the following information sources
in its last attempts: fedora-core-1 @
http://fedora.redhat.com/releases/fedora-core-1, updates-released @
Confirming Jef's comments. Getting exactly the same here.
