Description F. Duncan M. Haldane 2001-12-16 02:51:04 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.16 i686)

Description of problem:
The  patch  gnome-python-1.4.1-disablethreads.patch  is malformed and
completely disables
threads in pygtk (it was only supposed to  disable them if an enviroment
variable is set,  but
is incorrectly written....)  all  pygtk applications that use threads are
completely broken in RH7.2 :(

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run any threads-based gtk application.
2.(see the pygtk mailing list referenced above)

Actual Results:  application hangs.

Expected Results:  should not hang.  Worls fine if pygtk is downgraded to
the version
that came with RedHat 7.1, rebuilt on RH 7.2,
