Python seg fault when rebooting

Description of problem:
python seg fault on reboot. seg fault in /usr/bin/python : process 1337
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
From the Gnome desktop.
1.Click on 'Main Menu' button.
2.Click on 'Log out'.
3.When the dialog box appears select 'Reboot' and click ok.
Actual Results: Error dialog appears stating that a seg fault has occurred in
/usr/bin/python : process 1337. Then the system will reboot without any further
Expected Results: It should reboot cleanly, with no error dialogs.
After further looking this crash i.e. a quick look at '/proc/1337' I found this
is related to the rhn_applet i.e. the rhn update checker which lives on the
Gnome main desktop menu. Once this applet is removed, I experience no more seg
faults when rebooting.
Hum, I'm unable to reproduce this on Red Hat 8 or Red Hat 9
following the exact same steps. If you have a way to reproduce
this behaviour on a recent version please reopen the bug
and provide those,
