/usr/bin/gnome-font-install inf-loops in rawhide 20010103?

There must be a simple explanation to this problem, but I haven't had time
to investigate. Perhaps
it is a simple pilot error, and not a bug at all. Nevertheless, here goes:
My Rawhide 20001222 systems, including gnome-print-0.20-8.i386.rpm, have
no problem running
the following command, which is included in the postinstall script of
/usr/bin/gnome-font-install --system --scan --no-copy \
Running the same program on my Rawhide 20010103 systems, with either
gnome-print-0.25-1.i386.rpm or gnome-print-0.20-8.i386.rpm installed, seems
an infinite loop, or at least a command execution that soaks the CPU for
longer than I am willing
These systems all have 352 RPMs installed, almost all from Rawhide. If
further details would help,
I'd be happy to provide them. These systems have no
/usr/share/ghostscript/fonts directories, and
they have 771 files under /usr/share/fonts.
gnome-print-install was considerably rewritten in gnome-print-0.29,
so I'm guessing this probably is fixed now. gnome-print-0.29-2 should
show up in rawhide sometime soon, and if it still happens with
that, please reopen.
