Description James Manning 2000-06-12 16:55:29 EDT
While in Time Zone selection, I left the defaults for "Location"
(since they're correct), hit the "UTC Offset" tab to check it out
(noticed it had Daylight Saving Time defaulting to off, and it's
actually spelled "Savings" afaik). Noticed it seemed ok and hit the
Location tab again to switch back when the following exception occurred:

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 176, in run
    mainloop ()
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/gtk.py", line 2538, in mainloop
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/gtk.py", line 125, in __call__
    ret = apply(self.func, a)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/timezone_gui.py", line 100, in setcurrent
SystemError: NULL result without error in call_object

Machine is a standard Netfinity 3500 (dual 333) using the on-board
adaptec, installing to second scsi drive.

hmmm ... I cannot reproduce this behavior in test ...

does this still occur using beta2 ...?
Comment 2 James Manning 2000-06-26 21:00:20 EDT
You can't reproduce it since it was fixed already (and I wish that this bug
would have been changed to reflect that earlier, but I guess msw's busy :)
