Description David Wood 2007-11-14 15:53:46 UTC
My /etc/hosts file is being corrupted when I select the hosts tab in
system-config-network and save the configuration (even if I don't change
anything).  Furthermore, the list of hosts isn't being correctly displayed.  I
just get the local host repeated for each line.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
Open the attached /etc/hosts file with system-config-network.  Don't change
anything. Save changes on exit.
Actual results:
Extra meaningless host lines, tabs added all over the place.

Expected results:
An unchanged /etc/hosts file.
