Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-01-11 16:15:56 EST
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-01-11 17:56:02 EST
This request was erroneously denied for the current release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.  The error has been fixed and this
request has been re-proposed for the current release.

Bug is on the client, as the leds are supposed to blink, but not when the client doesn't have focus.
Comment 7 Alon Levy 2011-03-21 11:40:34 EDT
I have a scratch build, can you see if it solves the problem (tested locally with the patches in the build):

Comment 8 Alon Levy 2011-04-13 01:35:42 EDT
Can someone test the scratch build above?
Comment 9 Suqin Huang 2011-04-13 02:05:40 EDT
Hi Alon, I can not download the package
Comment 10 Lubos Kocman 2011-05-09 09:53:16 EDT
Hello Alon,

the scratch build is gone. Could you please create some non-temporary build with backported fix from RHEL6? So we can finally fix it? 

Set back to assigned as there is no avaiable build with the fix.
Comment 11 Alon Levy 2011-05-11 14:51:52 EDT

Sorry for the delay, had to relearn the building procedure.
