Last modified: 2009-02-25 11:07:26 EST
Description of problem:
Fedora Core 10 Preview installer crashes when entering a URL to an FTP location with password.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Four times in a row.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. English / US / URL / config network / URL Setup
2. type ftp://username@server/pub (will fail, but crash anyway)
kernel crash "install exited abnormally" with backtrace:
