Description Warren Togami 2002-04-11 04:42:13 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020405

Description of problem:
When I attempt to run redhat-config-users from Nautilus, it displays for a split
second then immediately disappears.  The process appears to die.

Tested as root and non-root (via userhelper-gtk) with same result.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
redhat-config-users-1.0-12 from Rawhide

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into Gnome.
2. In "Start Here" select "System Settings" 
3. Select "User Manager"

Alternative to Reproduce:
1. Nautilus "/usr/bin"
2. Run redhat-config-users from there.

Actual Results:  
You see redhat-config-users run for a split second, but disappears immediately.

Expected Results:  
It shouldn't disappear.

Little more information here.  This is only happening when the application is
launched from Nautilus.  Calling the application directly works just fine. 
Pretty odd.
Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2002-04-11 11:11:10 EDT
Please check if upgrading to eel-1.0.2-10 (in today's Raw Hide) fixes this
problem (it should).
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2002-04-12 06:23:43 EDT
Tested and confirmed fixed.

Was the problem gtk2 related?
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2002-04-12 10:09:05 EDT
Well, yes and no.  Technically, it was a bug in eel, so no.  However, pygtk2
(libglade2 actually) was dumping some silly error messages to stdout.  However,
eel wasn't opening stdout correctly, so when libglade2 (used by
redhat-config-users) tried to write error messages to stdout which wasn't open,
the program would crash.  The new eel solves the problem by opening stdout
