This bug now has a patch upstream which i have not yet verified whether it helps
me or not. I will make a try although the patch did not apply cleanly, i am not
a hacker though, so almost anyone would be better than me on testing this out.
See more on the subject in the gnome bugreport
Okay, let's wait until a new release is pushed upstream and put into rawhide.
If it fixes the problem for you then maybe we can do an FC4 update.
I cano confirm this, and apparently there's already a fix in CVS for 2.10
(according to that gnome bugzilla's link.
This is fixed with FC5 (Gnome 2.14)
