crash when alacarte is not installed

Trying to edit the panel menus when alacarte is not installed leads to a crash,
This crash has been fixed in gnome-panel 2.16.1. I recommend that we upgrade to
this version in RHEL5. The only other change that it contains is a fix for a
problem with incomplete lockdown, which is also a good fix to have in RHEL5.
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.
built gnome-panel-2.16.1-1.el5, r-e mail sent
As I did not find **in gnome-panel, choose "Edit menus"** in our systems. So
retest the bug with gnome-panel-2.16.0-7.el5 on RHEL5-Client-20061108.nightly
Workstation with the following steps:
1. Click System menu ->Preferences->Menu Layout, as alacarte was installed, so
Menu Layout window poped up.
2. Remove alacarte from the system, click System menu ->Preferences and find the
Menu Layout has been removed too.
Is there any problem during my testing steps? Appreciate if anybody will give us
some suggestion on it. Thanks.
gnome-panel-2.16.1-4.el5.i386 makes things all happy and is included in the
latest RHEL5 builds.
