Description of problem:
system-config-network doesn't create the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup as it
says it does.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.0.51-1.fc7
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.) At menu, choose: 'System->Administration->Display'
2.) Enter administrator (root) password
3.) Make any changes to the display settings
4.) Click 'OK' button
5.) Check at path /etc/X11/
If there is no file named /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup, it is not created. If there
is one, it is not updated.

None for now.

If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as
INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
Very much true with the latest Rawhide. Present itself with other use of chvt as
well -- when running pm-suspend I get "a lot of EOLs" problem as well.
Forget the last sentence -- too much talking with skasal made me loosing
concentration and this should go to anotehr bug. The morale of the previous
comment is that this is very much reproducible with Rawhide as of today.
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.
If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)
Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

We will be following the process here:
