Description of problem:
If you have a postscript file open in ggv and then try to replace the
postscript file with a new/updated one, the reload button does not
pick up the changes as it should. The only way to pick up the changes
is to re-open the document. This reload functionality is important,
for example, when modifying a TeX document repeatedly and then each
time generating a PS file to check your work.

3. Click the reload button in ggv. You should find that it doesn't

This bug is filed against RHEL 3, which is in maintenance phase.
During the maintenance phase, only security errata and select mission
critical bug fixes will be released for enterprise products. Since
this bug does not meet that criteria, it is now being closed.

If you feel this bug is indeed mission critical, please contact your
support representative. You may be asked to provide detailed
information on how this bug is affecting you.
I reported this bug in January 2005 when RHEL 3 was still fully maintained (i.e.
normal bug fixes were still being issued). There was no action for over two
years, and now that RHEL 3 has entered maintenance phase, someone finally
responds to tell me that it won't be fixed. This issue may in fact be fixed
already; I don't know. But I do feel that it is very poor form to not respond
for such a long time, and then only to respond that it won't be fixed because
the product has entered maintenance mode.
