gcalctool 5.8.25 fixes two crasher in gcalctool. 


for detailed reproduction instructions. I recommend
updating gcalctool to 5.8.25 before RHEL5
Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2006-11-04 16:24:50 EST
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux release.  Product Management has requested further review
of this request by Red Hat Engineering.  This request is not yet committed for
inclusion in release.

Normally doing a rebase this late in the game might be a hard sell, but in this
case the rebase *only* adds those two fixes, so upgrading will give us a package
version that more closely matches the upstream tarball version without adding
any risk.

built gcalctool-5.8.25-1.el5
Comment 4 Nicole Dai 2006-11-09 03:42:36 EST
Reproduced the crash referred in 354730 with gcalctool-5.8.24-3.el5 but did not
reproduce the 359291 crash with gcalctool-5.8.24-3.el5 on Arabic(United Arab

After upgrade to gcalctool-5.8.25-1.el5,repeat the steps of bug 354730:
open gcalctool
enter scientific mode
select 'dec'
select 'fix'
enter the following (clicking on the buttons)
3 (three)
* (times)
10x (the button, 10 to the power of)
8 (thirty eight)
select 'bin'
= (equals)
####it doesn't work####
select 'dec'
= (equals again)
####it doesn't work####

Notes: As it click '=' doesn't work I am not sure if it is correct. Anyway
verified the crash was not found after upgrade. 

After upgrade to gcalctool-5.8.25-1.el5,repeat the steps of bug 359291:Log in
system with Arabic(United Arab Emirates/India/Egypt/Lebanon) separately, launch
gcalctool and click randomly. No crash was found as before upgrade.
