From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/0

Description of problem:
fortune-mod is installed and works great as screen-saver (Phosphor).
I also selected Fortunes as Start-up hint, but the start-up hint box remains
empty. Clicking 'next' doesn't change this.
Maybe it's a problem of Gnome ?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set Fortunes as Start-Up Hint
2. Start Gnome
3. Observe empty box

Actual Results:  Box is empty

Expected Results:  Fortune is displayed

Hmm... fortune-mod is used by the GUI fortune stuff, but it wouldn't be
causing the problem you're seeing.  That would be a problem with the GUI
client itself.  Not sure what component that falls under, so I'm reassigning
to gnome-core so Havoc or Owen can look into it and reassign to the proper

We no longer have startup hints in 8.0.
