Hi Mr. Anderson,

Does this still happen with FC3? 

This sounds like a problem with the X Server.  I'm going to reassign
the component to the X maintainers.

Comment 2 M J Anderson 2004-11-09 21:18:10 UTC
I haven't used FC3 in depth yet, still working on FC2. I suspected 
that maybe X Server had something to with it. Thanks for feedback.
