Description of problem:
On RHEL5-B2(kernel-2.6.18-1.2839.el5),when we try to close the gnome-terminal
by clicking the "Close button (x)" , we get a pop-up message that the window we
are trying to close is not responding.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RHEL5-B2 x86_64(kernel-2.6.18-1.2839.el5)
2.Open a gnome-terminal

4.Try to close the window by clicking "X" (right hand corner) button.

NOT A BLOCKER:
Per telecon with Sue Denham (RH), Larry Troan (RH), John Hull (Dell) and Dale
Kaisner (Dell) on 1/02/07.
While Dell would like to see this fixed for GA, it is NOT a BLOCKER.
Tracking this against RHEL 5.1.0 as the chances of this making RHEL 5.0.0 at
this point appear to be slim to none.
Issue not reproducible on RHEL5-RC-Snapshot7(kernel-2.6.18-1.3002.el5).
Closing this issue as a WFM since it's not reproducible anymore.
Reopening this issue since it is reproducible on RHEL5-Gold x86_64(kernel-
This is a known issue about metacity and more details about the issue can be
found at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=348305
metacity-2.16.2 fixes the issue.(RHEL5-Gold has metacity-2.16.0-8.el5)
I would reassign to metacity. There's not much to do in gnome-terminal
Okay, re-assigning to metacity.
Devel ack; the explanation in the gnome bug sounds very plausible to me.
This bug is indeed metacity-related (rather than gnome-terminal), and still
present (on 64-bit CentOS 5). It can be reproduced with various programs that
open a dialog after clicking the close button -- gedit, and OpenOffice, for example.
Quite a small but annoying feature.
Expected to be in RHEL5.2.
Accepted to RHEL5 fastrack channel (not errata channel) on RHN so package should
be available via that RHN channel prior to 5.2 availability.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
