[Mass switching of bugs filed against FC4T3 to fc4test3 from test3]
Comment 3 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 06:45:47 EST
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 ?

Comment 4 Roozbeh Pournader 2007-01-22 06:59:32 EST
Confirming that the bug still exists on FC6 (and very probably also on Rawhide).
Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-03-18 14:41:34 EDT

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?

Comment 6 Farzaneh Sarafraz 2008-04-06 09:55:52 EDT
Confirming that the bug still exists in the default theme on FC8. I will file a
bug on GDM.
Comment 7 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-04-06 14:01:06 EDT
This should be fixed in F9.  We probably won't fix in F8, since the fix is
likely theme dependent.
