[Mass switching of bugs filed against FC4T3 to fc4test3 from test3]
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Confirming that the bug still exists on FC6 (and very probably also on Rawhide).
We no longer support Fedora Core 6 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state. I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?
(this is a mass message)
Confirming that the bug still exists in the default theme on FC8. I will file a
bug on GDM.
This should be fixed in F9. We probably won't fix in F8, since the fix is
likely theme dependent.
