Description of problem:
In Gnome2 of Null, if you press the Print-Screen button, gnome-panel-screenshot
runs, taking a screenshot and opening another window. This is nice, but
potentially deadly in the freak chance that somebody holds down the Print-Screen
button. The machine will quickly spawn an unlimited number of windows, OOM and die.
This is a disaster waiting to happen... especially for LTSP servers. One
student holds down Print-Screen, and bam, the entire server and all thin clients
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to Gnome2
2. Hold down Print-Screen button.
OOM. Crash. Burn.
gnome-panel rate limiting, or perhaps a small finite limit of
gnome-panel-screenshot windows on the screen.
