Yum Extender Screenshot
Yumex depends on running some yum api routines to do the real work, i some
situations it can take some time before it respond with some output or a callback.
I the mean time the gui can blank out.
Some of the initalisation are running in a background thread, but other thing
are not, because it can give unpredictable results.
I am working to improve the responsebillity all the time, but there is still
some situation were it can blank out for a period of time.
Great, hopefully in time this will be fixed, thanks.
