session of the program.

Comment 1 Warren Togami 2002-04-07 23:11:59 EDT
I just tested it in Gnome, it works fine there.    
This appears to be a duplicate of Bug 62308 where KDE window manager is not    
honoring WM hints.  redhat-config-users works fine in KDE, except the new Add  
User dialogue is appearing beneith the main window the second time you use it.  
If this is in fact a duplicate, then this is a kdebase component bug.
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2002-04-08 11:17:34 EDT
bshotts, are you running the program from the command line?  If not, try doing
that.  Perhaps there is a traceback or error message that you can't see if you
run it from the menu.

Also, you should upgrade to

since I've fixed some bugs since 1.0-8.  Does 1.0-10 make the problem go away?
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2002-04-08 16:04:16 EDT
Correction, grab redhat-config-users-1.0-11 instead.
Comment 4 William Shotts 2002-04-08 19:25:33 EDT
redhat-config-users-1.0-10.noarch.rpm (11 not on the rawhide site) fails to come
up with the follwoing error messages:

redhat-config-users (pid:1672): Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by Xlib

As to the original error, warren@togami.com is correct, the user dialog appears
under the application window.
Comment 5 Warren Togami 2002-04-08 20:58:52 EDT
How long does it take for new packages to reach rawhide?
redhat-config-users-1.0-11 is not there yet.  subversion 10 is indeed broken
with the same error above.

Comment 6 Brent Fox 2002-04-09 10:06:10 EDT
It usually appears the next day.  redhat-config-users-1.0-12.noarch.rpm is there
now.  Can you give that a try?
Comment 7 Warren Togami 2002-04-09 14:13:58 EDT
tested -12.noarch.rpm.  It no longer crashes like -10.noarch.rpm, but it doesn't
fix the original problem that is most likely the KDE window manager not
acknowleding WM hints in Bug 62308.
Comment 8 Brent Fox 2002-04-09 14:29:07 EDT
Ok.  At the very least, we tracked down some bugs in redhat-config-users...they
just weren't bugs related to this particular problem.  I now agree that the
behavior here is a KDE problem.  The New User window appears on top the first
time.  But every time you launch the window after that, it appears under the
parent window.

I'm going to dupe this against bug 62308
