Description Edward Kuns 1999-06-13 20:05:51 UTC
Entering this bug, I didn't see a "gmc" component so I put
this under "gnome".

In gmc-4.5.30-12 when I view an RPM file's contents, all
seems well until I double click on any file inside the RPM.
After that, gmc seems to be very confused about what
filesnames are in the rpm, getting junk names.  In addition,
it fails to open files, saying "file not found".

If I close gmc and start it up again and never double-click
on anything, it seems to work better.  ie, if I always use
the right-button followed by "view".

Also, gmc doesn't clean up after itself in /tmp.  It leaves
many many "ext2s*" and "file*" files in /tmp.

Both of these issues were verified in the test lab.

Comment 2 Elliot Lee 1999-08-03 20:14:59 UTC
I can't reproduce part 1 using gmc from CVS today, but the VFS timeout
doesn't seem to be removing files correctly, so part 2 remains.

 Do the temporary files littering /tmp persist in gmc from the forthcoming 6.2
