Description Matt Castelein 2008-12-17 23:50:20 EST
Description of problem:
Choosing System->Administration->Services from gnome menu produces "Starting Services" button on taskbar, which then disappears.  Running from command line produced:
Traceback (most recent call last):

    GUI (use_dbus = use_dbus).run ()
  File "/usr/bin/system-config-services", line 900, in __init__

This is a duplicate of bug #475200 and is fixed by the latest batch of updates.  In the meantime, you can run it from the command line as root after "su -" (not just "su").
