Description shane 2008-05-18 04:35:01 EDT
Description of problem:  If I log into 1 type of linux, like redhat 6.0 and then
log into fedora9 or rhel5 it jacks up all my gnome settings.

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

How reproducible: everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in to 1 version of redhat or fedora
2. log in to another version of redhat or fedora
Actual results: everything gets messed up

Expected results: everything not getting messed up.  You should put conf files
in a Dist owned dir something like:

/home/dumbprogrammer/.slack12.1/.kde #thats what i said?!?

Then if I wanted to share a conf file between distros I could put it in my home
in the "bad" place and make link to it.  I haven't noticed to many problems with
console apps, a little from vim and a few others but in gnome, and kde it is a
serious problem.  It causes crashes too.

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 20:57:30 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 12:29:03 EDT
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
