Description of problem:
gnome-dictionary will hang when given a string longer than 225
characters. Clearly this is an extremely rare case, but it could still
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gnome-dictionary.
2. Put more than 225 characters in the "Word:" box.
3. Click "Look Up Word" .
gnome-dictionary attempts to look up the word.
while gnome-dictionary is hanging, this line is repeated in strace:
read(20, "", 4096) = 0
Looks like this got fixed upstream, and is now in rawhide. Since this
is an edge case, I don't see the need to push to FC2. Marking RAWHIDE.
