Description John T. Rose 2006-07-30 09:34:38 EDT
Description of problem:

gnome-panel now crashes when attempting to open the launcher properties dialog.
I noticed this after a new full install and update the other day and have
confirmed it on other up to date RHEL4 Update 3 systems.

Doing a further update against the Dag Wieers repo (which updates the recently
changed freetype libraries among other things fixes the problem).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on the web browser icon in the upper panel (or any other launcher)
2. Select Properties
3. Crash
Actual results:

Expected results:

Hi John,

You are quite correct with your assessment that the problem may be related to

Recently, we pushed out a freetype update that has caused various problems
including your reported problem.

New packages are being QA'd now, and will hopefully go out tomorrow.
