up2date has the following problems. It had them with the version that came
with 6.1 (the one installed on this machine) and upgrading to 1.13-1 didn't
1) After the netscape selection, unknown dialog with a head and a question
mark pops up with 'Close Window?','OK','Cancel'
2) It gets stuck after few packages (which it manages to download)
3) After a while it outputs:
[root@spaghetti up2date]# Exception in thread Thread-2:
