Description of problem:
As advised in bug #138714, I upgraded the x11 to the rawhide version
in order to see if it fixed the problem with the stuck screen
resolution. I have been using this recent release of x11, and have
noticed that both GYUM (gyum-1.0-1.fc2), and Synaptic
(synaptic-0.55.3-1.1.fc3.rf) now crash part way as they launch.  

Thought it was worth logging as a bug before it gets released.

If synaptic or gyum are crashing, it would most likely be a bug
in those applications themselves, and you should report the bug
to the author of either application directly, or to the maintainer
of the synaptic/gyum packages.

You've indicated that you've upgraded synaptic and the problem is
gone, so I'm assuming this was a synaptic bug fixed in a newer
version of synaptic, and closing the xorg-x11 bug report as

If you experience further problems with synaptic or gyum, please
report the problem to the authors of the software for investigation.
