Jonathan -- is this a gnome-vfs bug?

Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2003-11-19 07:05:06 UTC
confirmed this on Fedora Core 1. Happens in konqueror running
install-packages as well as nautilus.

looks like the args need to be quoted
seeing this in ps
 python /usr/share/redhat-config-packages/SinglePackageWindow.py
/home/skvidal/gsl foo.rpm
