Description of problem:
Clear Recent Documents does not take effect until logoff.
This is a bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See Summary.
Do you have gamin installed?
A known problem with gamin apparently
To elaborate - I think its that monitoring a file (as opposed to a
directory) is broken with rawhide gamin but is probably fixed in the
latest gamin in CVS. Will be updated soon
A fix for the gamin problem is present in 0.0.6 which has been
pushed to rawhide, the bug should be fixed after an upgrade and
the restart of the session,
thanks for the report,
Still hosed as of rawhide-20040831...
1) > md5sum .recently-used
2) select "Clear Recent Documents"
3) > md5sum .recently-used
Still have to logoff to have the list cleared
What version of gamin ? Did you restarted the session ?
[16:13] <jlaska> there is no package named gamin installed on my system
[16:14] <jlaska> is this a library or provided by another pkg
[16:14] <jlaska> (locate gamin -- return empty)
[16:14] <DV> rpm -q gamin
[16:14] <jlaska> no such file
[16:14] <jlaska> no such rpm
so using fam, which does not work with SELinux. Different bug,
fixed precisely by gamin.
