Description of problem:
`top` utility from procps doesn't function correctly. When window colors are changed, pressing 'W' doesn't save configuration file (.toprc) correctly, so the next time the top is started, the old black-and-white screen always appears (as if nothing were changed). Examining .toprc config file, it can be seen that labels on the left side are missing (Def, Job, ...).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start top
2. Change the window colors
3. Press 'W' to save configuration file. Configuration file is saved (but not correctly). Restart the top utility.
Actual Results: Black-and-white screen appears as if nothing were changed.
Expected Results: Colored window must appear.
This may be interesting: RHEL-4 AS 'procps' binary rpm package works OK on FC4. But, when source RHEL-4 'procps' rpm package is rebuilt on FC4, rebuilt 'top' works just as FC4 'top' (doesn't save .toprc correctly).
