This is fixed in the newest versions, in fact this was only a bug in the
original .0 version that came out with gnome2.
Can you try the 188.8.131.52 package from rawhide when it appears?
(you = reporter, not george)
I can reproduce this every single time in Limbo II with no updates.
Limbo 2 had 184.108.40.206 I think, george is claiming 220.127.116.11 from rawhide will fix.
After having upgraded to the rawhide release, I have NOT been able to reproduce
the problem... Fix confirmed!
Thanks, sounds good.
