This is fixed in the newest versions, in fact this was only a bug in the
original .0 version that came out with gnome2.
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-01 14:15:48 EDT
Can you try the package from rawhide when it appears?
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-01 14:16:59 EDT
(you = reporter, not george)
Comment 6 Need Real Name 2002-08-04 16:07:27 EDT
I can reproduce this every single time in Limbo II with no updates.
Comment 7 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-04 16:22:24 EDT
Limbo 2 had I think, george is claiming from rawhide will fix.
Comment 8 Thomas M Steenholdt 2002-08-04 17:17:33 EDT
After having upgraded to the rawhide release, I have NOT been able to reproduce
the problem... Fix confirmed!
