I didn't notice this before, but window that opens is just a few pixels too tall to fit onto the desktop. Instead of being centred or something, it gets pushed too high.

I see 0.7.8 was built for F-11. Any chance we can have this as an update for F-10 at least? The commit I pointed to in comment #2 is included in that release...

Comment 5 Bojan Smojver 2008-11-23 22:31:29 UTC
Still present in F-10. I'm not going to rebase to rawhide at this point, as it may actually be fixed on 0.7.8. Any chance we get that into F-10 testing?

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 02:38:43 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
