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.
*** Bug 75395 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Are there any test packages available yet to try this fix?
See test packages at ftp://people.redhat.com/hp/testing/
HP, your packages don't seem to have any packages in your directory.
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?
I downloaded hp's testing RPMs and they seem to fix the problem.
These packages are in the errata queue and will be out there once QA'd.
Fixed in rawhide also.
