Description Andrew D. 2004-12-31 14:51:05 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:

	When I log in, my rhn icon in the gnome panel gives the 
message "checking for updates" but does not go beyond this. If I right 
click on it, all options except for exit are greyed out. If I run 
rhn-applet-gui from a gnome terminal I get the error below. If I run 
rhn-applet-tui, eveything seems to work fine. Also, up2date seems to 
work fine. One thing I notice is that the uuid in 
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhn-applet file is different than the rhnuuid in 
the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date-uuid file. I have reinstalled both 
python and rhn-applet and the problem is still there. I think this 
started after I updated to RHEL3.4 from RHEL3.3 via up2date. Here are 
the versions for the relevant programs:
(BTW, my RHN account has not expired)

Thank you in advance for any help.
