Description of problem: yumex freezes at initialization

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. invoke yumex from line or menu
Actual results:
window1 opens (but frozen) and a bug window opens, telling of an unhandled
exception; claim is that image file format of an icon (of type png) is not

Expected results:
yumex initializes and i then do upgrades, etc.

Additional info:
successfully used yumex yesterday for upgrades; before invoking today, enabled
nightly yum upgrades (chkconfig yum on), but turning that back off made no
effect on this bug; i have a near identical fc5 install on my laptop and yumex
still works perfectly there; yumex rocks -- thanks for the coding

look like /usr/share/pixmaps/yumex/yumex-icon.png is corrupted in some way.

Try to reinstall yumex.

yum remove yumex

yum install yumex

(as root)

did that ([un/re]-install yumex) before i reported the bug. also checked that
another app could look at yumex-icon.png. then converted it to gif, and
back-converted it to png, again, before reporting the bug.

good news/bad news. good=i don't think that it's yumex. bad=it's something with
png. gimp is now telling me that it has no support for png (despite the fact
that it will both read and write png files). please kill this bug report. thanks.
