Description Kenny Graunke 2001-08-07 03:10:40 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010725

Description of problem:
The "System Settings" icon appears even if double clicking it just shows an
empty folder (i.e. there are no system settings available)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the Start Here folder.
2. (Click System Settings, observe empty folder.)

Actual Results:  The System Settings icon shows, but only opens an empty

Expected Results:  The System Settings icon should not even appear in the
Start Here folder unless there is something meaningful to do with it.

Additional info:

System Settings is the only one I have this for - I also have no Favorites,
but that should clearly stay, as I believe the point is that users can add
things there. I don't think this is the case with System Settings, however.

I think the bug here is "there isn't anything in system settings" - there always
should be. I'm poking people to get this fixed. ;-)

I think it always contains something now. If it doesn't in certain cases we need
to file bugs against the installer or something.
