Description of problem:
I have a lapto with Fedora core 1, which I use with a direct
connection to the Internet (at home) or with a proxy (at work). I have
rhn-applet configured without a proxy. With a direct connection at
home everything is working fine.
However if I use my laptop at work and then want to log out of GNOME,
the logging out hangs for about 1 minute. I guess some time out in
rhn-applet is causing this, because when I first stop rhn-applet
manually logging out goes fast. When the logging out is hanging I saw
in another terminal that rhn-applet was still running and when I
killed it my Gnome Session immediately logged out.

NOTE with this behaviour behind a proxy I still have the applet
configured with a direct connection to the internet. I works fine if I
select the appropriate proxy. However I'm to lazy to change this (and
also forget this ) every time.

A suggestion which would make life more easy for me would be to use an
automatic configuration script. I do this with mozilla. When mozilla
does not find this script it just assumes it has a direct connection.
That way it automagically works at home and at work.

Furthermore isn't there a way such that applications can get the proxy
settings from the Network Proxy settings in the Gnome Preferences
menu. (I guess KDE has something similar). This would save a lot of
setting proxies in different programs.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose no proxy in rhn_applet
2. Connect your PC to a network with a proxy
3. Start up gnome
4. Log out of gnome

Actual Results:  It hangs for about a minute

Expected Results:  Immediate logout

Can you upgrade to the latest rhn-applet and see if that stil occurs?

You can get it here:

Also, check your proxy settings.  There seems to be issues with
rhn-applet an proxy servers.  See bug 107315 and bug 114085.

If it works after the upgrade let us know.
