From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020809

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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.choose an invalid ntp server, say
2.click ok
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.
