Description of problem: Summary
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): system-config-firewall-1.2.13-2.fc10
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable Assistive Technologies
2. Start system-config-firewall
3. Window will be drawn, but it is immediately frozen and must be killed.
4. Disable Assistive Technologies
5. system-config-firewall starts
Actual results: Frozen window
Expected results: Working window
Additional info: A google search finds that other users are having the same issue. http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=214273
Could you explain what assistive technologies is? How do I install and/or enable it?
# yum install control-center
This is also available in Gnome's System>Personal menu option. Check the box that says "Enable assistive technologies" and click on "Close and Log Out" then try system-config-firewall.
system-config-firewall is not frozen, but inserting en element into a treeview takes a lot of time with assistive technologies enabled.
This seems to be a gtk2 problem.
Reassigning to gtk2.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '10'.
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 10'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 10 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:
Looks to be fixed with F12 final. Following my STR I do not see any slow window drawing.
