doesn't happen here on x86_64 F-7

Luke, does the problem vanish if you disable assistive technology's with

Comment 3 Luke Macken 2007-07-04 15:30:54 UTC
Yep, this problem stops occurring when the assistive technology is disabled.

Comment 4 Thorsten Leemhuis 2007-07-07 11:10:37 UTC
I suspect the problem at hand might have something to do with the stuff
discussed in Bug 227828 Comment 10 ; I tried to move the GDK_THREADS_ENTER in
ghex, but my limited (nearly non-existent) C- and gnome-foo is not enough to fix
this (this would be the perfect moment to improve my skills in that area, but 36
hours days are still not invented). 

Luke, could you help me to fix this? The alternative would be to report the
problem upstream, but that mostly dead afaics.

Life again! I forwarded the reported upstream:

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 13:23:32 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.

Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:

The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2008-06-17 01:46:29 UTC
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008. 
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not 
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we 
are closing this bug. 

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version 
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
