Description of problem:
the icon on my application bar freezes (staying blue) at start up
stating searching for RNH updates, but no action for hours.The Red Hat
Network is working fine as I could get latest updates.
If I right click on same icon the only option not shadowed is exit
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
up2date 4.3.47-5 up2date-gnome 4.3.47-5
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Wait and see the RedHat update icon staying blue
Actual Results: Icon freezes blue
Expected Results: Switching drom blue to red if any update available
Disinstalled up2date, up2date-gnome, firtsboot and rhn-applet, then
re-installed same packages, but still no improvement.
What is locking my poor RHN applet??

Is the output of starting rhn-applet-gui in a terminal.
RHN is working fine, only the icon on the min menu is still freezing
It seems that is failing to initialize source.
This for me is mysterious as I can update regularly by RedHat Network
(even this morning).
It seems that the following line is the problem

and that bug (for fc3test) has been already reported!!!
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closing per lack of response to previous comment. If this still occurs on FC3
or FC4 and is a security issue, please assign to Fedora Legacy and the
appropriate version. The bug could also be filed against RHEL if it is relevant
up2date has been replaced by pirut and pup in FC5 and FC6, the still fully
supported versions of Fedora Core, so this bug will not be fixed unless it is a
