Description Paul Sorensen 2008-01-05 13:01:01 EST
Description of problem:
If you move the mouse over a package the name changes. What might be the root 
cause of this, is that the package name (exact version) is duplicated in the
list. The strange mouse over behvior happens on the duplicated entry. When the
change happens, it becomes variously the duplicated package, name before or name

The other thing I have noticed, packages are no longer sorted as they were in
previous versions.

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

How reproducible:
Every time. Have seen it in other places besides as how I indicated in the steps
below. I suspect where this may also depend on the currently installed packages
and what not.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click Add/Remove Software 
2. Select Nase System
3. Select System tools
4. Click optional packages
5. Look for Bochs-2.3.5-1.fc8.x86_64
6, You may or may not see the duplicated entry, but running the mouse over the
area will cause the duplication and or cause the name to change variously.

Actual results:
You will probably see a duplicate name in the list. The second one is the one
seems to change. I see the name change variously between Bochs, cabextract or

Expected results:
Correct listing without duplicates and name changes

I'm wondering if bug 426901 complaining about the same behavior in anaconda is
somehow related.  I couldn't reproduce that one, though.

Changing hardware to all since my reproducer was done in i386.  I just noticed that.
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2008-05-28 15:27:55 EDT
This isn't going to get changed at this point as pirut is pretty much entirely
EOL'd and only getting critical fixes for older releases.  In Fedora 9 and
later, any such concerns can be filed against PackageKit/gnome-packagekit.
