Description of problem:
"Configure display settings", changing monitor orientation
from the popup window (as opposed to clicking the
"Configure Display Settings" menu-item) crashes the desktop
session, after the screen goes haywire for a second.
Im thrown back to login screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3 times in a row.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. click "Configure display settings" panel icon.
2. click "Left"
3. session crashes
Switching screen orientation from the menu-item
doesnt crash. Screen goes haywire, but this reverts
itself, due to the "Does the display look OK"
dialog, which I presume displayed, and reverted to
the working config after the timeout.
no session crash.
I guessed at the component - the gnome-applets choice disappeared
since my last bug report (on the desktop icons placement)
attaching a dbus-monitor trace, but I dont think it captures the problem.
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
