Description of problem:
If you list an unreachable or closed ntp server, that your machine can't
synchronize with, the pop-up that says it's trying to synchronize remains forever.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.choose an invalid ntp server, say 127.0.0.2
4.wait some more
Actual Results: the terminal from which you started redhat-config-time (you
didn't run it from the menu, did you? :-) has already said it failed to sync
with the server for a long time, but the pop up window is still there. And it
won't go away unless you click on cancel.
Expected Results: It should time out and report the problem to the user.
Should be fixed in 1.5.2-5.
QA, please verify.
