Yes, this is the same bug that causes a crash if you log in while it's on a
vertical panel. It's fixed in CVS and I'm working on packages.

Are there any test packages available yet to try this fix?
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-19 21:40:04 EST
See test packages at ftp://people.redhat.com/hp/testing/
Comment 6 Need Real Name 2002-12-19 22:02:19 EST
HP, your packages don't seem to have any packages in your directory.
Comment 7 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-19 22:17:11 EST
what does "my packages don't have packages" mean? ;-)

anyhow, I see gnome-panel packages at ftp://people.redhat.com/hp/testing/
- it doesn't work for you?
Comment 8 Need Real Name 2002-12-20 01:14:54 EST
I downloaded hp's testing RPMs and they seem to fix the problem.
Comment 9 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-14 13:02:13 EST
These packages are in the errata queue and will be out there once QA'd. 
Fixed in rawhide also.
