Description of problem:
The patch gnome-python-1.4.1-disablethreads.patch is malformed and
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):
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
that came with RedHat 7.1, rebuilt on RH 7.2,
this is fixed in my 1.4.2 (0.6.9) package.
