Description of problem:

From web ticket # 279729.

Customer trying to use Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1's
redhat-config-users to manage their users. Unfortunatley the list of
users is too long, and the drop down window is too long and we can't
determine any method to scroll it.

As a workadound I showed the customer how to manage users from the
command line, but the customer finds this unacceptable for the long term.

Are you certain that this is from redhat-config-users?  I don't recall
using a user drop-down menu in that manner.  It's hard to tell from
the screenshot which app is underneath.

If it is from redhat-config-users, the port to GTK2 in RHEL 3 will
take care of this problem because the long lists now automatically
have a scrollbar.  This doesn't help the AS2.1 user much since
upgrading to the redhat-config-users from RHEL 3 would require
upgrading GTK, pygtk, and probably lots of other stuff.
Comment 5 Chris Kloiber 2004-01-19 15:52:42 EST
The customer cannot use RHEL 3 due to an application requiring RHEL 2.1
Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2004-01-20 04:02:36 EST
This is fixed in all versions of Nautilus based on gtk+ 2, i.e. RHEL3
and later. Its not likely to be fixed for RHEL 2.1, since this is very
old code that could be destabilized by such a change, and there are
other ways to change ownership of files.
