Description of problem:
Kudzu discovered that I had replaced my network card with a gigabit
card. It configured the card (good), then asked for IP address info
(not good! it was already there from the old card, and things like
DNS search path and secondary/tertiary DNS got blown away). Whenever
I hit tab, return, or downarrow in the dialog, it put junk characters
on the screen, occasionally obscuring the text I had typed. By the
end of the edit it was difficult to determine whether I had typed the
right stuff or not.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure a network card without DHCP
2. replace it with a card having a different driver
3. in the boot, kudzu will offer you a typein box to enter new IP info
(why?). Type in it, and hit return or tab or downarrow to navigate
around a bit.
Actual Results: things look quite cruddy and difficult to read
Expected Results: I just want to see the IP address I typed.
(Actually, I don't want to see anything at all. The IP info for the
original card was fine and didn't need re-entering.)
This is 'fixed' in the devel tree, as that UI is never shown.
