For official Red Hat Enterprise Linux support, please log into the Red Hat
support website at http://www.redhat.com/support and file a support ticket,
or alternatively contact Red Hat Global Support Services at 1-888-RED-HAT1
to speak directly with a support associate and escalate an issue.

Once you've filed a support ticket, a support rep will work with you to
help determine the cause of the problem, and gather all of the data that
is required to investigate the underlying issue and pass it along to
engineering internally.

Thanks in advance.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2005-09-26 16:24:34 EDT
This bug report contains insufficient information to deduce wether the
problem is a misconfiguration or a bug.  There are no detailed steps
to reproduce present, or other useful information.

There's not enough information to conclude this is actually caused by a
bug, so I'm closing as "NOTABUG" for now.  If the problem persists, and
does not go away when using "system-config-display --reconfig", please
refer to comment #1 above in order to obtain official Red Hat support
for this problem.  A support associate will be able to assist you in
diagnosing wether it is configuration related, or a real bug, and if
the latter is the case, they will gather the data required and
escalate the issue to engineering as appropriate.

Thanks in advance.
