system-config-bind crashes whenever 'manual' is selected from the 'help' menu
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:01 EST
Description of problem:
Whenever I select 'manual' from the help menu, the application crashes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qa system-config-bind
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using an X session, remotely connect (via ssh) to the server as root
2. Run 'system-config-bind'
3. Click 'help' then 'manual'
4. Watch system-config-bind crash and burn
system-config-bind crashes. From the command line:
The program 'bindconf' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadIDChoice (invalid resource ID chosen for this connection)'.
I expected to see the help manual

Bug Buddy's bug report
I tried to reproduce the error at the console on the server, but when I
performed the steps to reproduce the problem, the manual just didn't show up --
the application did not crash.
