Description of problem:
After upgrading to rawhide over weekend of Feb 3/5 (basically fc5t2 plus)
the gnome desktop would just hang when I logged. Using the top
command it became quite apparent the hang was being caused by
the gnome-panel being in an (seemly) endless loop (which was
consuming all the CPU).
Working with a gnome maintainer, it was determined a possible
cause of this problem was the fact I dragged a directory called
Machines, at was in my ~/Desktop directory, to the top panel.
(note: I have two panels configured, a top one and bottom one).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Move a drag a directory on to the panel
Actual Results: The gnome-panel would go into an (seemly) endless loop
I think me and jonathan fixed this a few days ago. Are you still experiencing
No but I have not tried... but I will...
Just to be sure, What version of gnome-panel has the fix?
It was actually a bug in gnome-menus.
