This looks like the same bug as #37280.  What kind of machine are you seeing
this behavior on?

Comment 2 Robert Kane 2001-04-25 20:30:15 UTC
Compaq Deskpro Pentium Pro 200MHz with a Matrox Millenium PCI Video card, 128MB 
RAM, Adaptec AIC7x00 (2940U) PCI host adaptor, Western Digital 6.4GB hard 
drive, IBM 4x CDRom, Python 4mm DAT DDS-DC SCSI tape.  I can be more specific 
if need be.

Ok, bug #37280 was seen on a Compaq Deskpro as well, so I'm resolving this bug
as a dupe of bug 37280 since it arrived first.  If you could continue to respond
to bug 37280, it would help us to consolidate these reports in one place.
