Description Andre Klapper 2007-10-21 10:12:53 EDT
the crash is triggered by a fedora-specific patch:

seems like a lot of fedora7 users run into this issue
(>80 duplicate reports so far in gnome bugzilla).
i have only seen reports from fedora7 so far, no fedora8beta reports, so perhaps
this issue has been fixed in the meantime. if so, shipping a backport patch for
fedora7 would be highly appreciated to lower the workload of the gnome bugsquad.

Søren, any news here? Will this be fixed in Fedora 8?
Yes, we still get a lot of reports in GNOME Bugzilla. ;-)
Comment 4 Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2007-11-12 16:37:17 EST
Sorry about that. I'll get to this tomorrow, I promise. 

(I had a mail issue that caused me to not see a lot of bugzilla mail).
