Description of problem:
When entering numbers in an xfig text box (e.g. editing the depth in the edit panel), two single digital numbers (e.g. 4 followed by 5 for 45) will come out backwards. The this example 45 enetered comes out as 54.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load xfig.
2. Draw a polyline.
3. Edit the properties of the line with by opening the edit panel.
4. Change the depth to 45 by deleting the current value and entering 4 followed by 5.
Actual Results: 54 appears.
Expected Results: The result should have been 45 instead of 54.
Workaround (very annoying): enter 5 and then 4 for 45.
Closing this bug as won't fix.
This issue has been fixed in RHEL 5.x and RHEL 4.x is currently in "Production 2 Life Cycle Phase", meaning that only bugs with priority HIGH and up are being fixed. I recommend upgrading to RHEL 5.x. You can contact your support representative if you have any questions.
