Taking GDM target/blockers.
Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2003-01-16 19:03:34 EST
I've never seen this on 4-5 installs in the last week or so, and nobody
else has reported it either. Do you have any idea about what is _different_
about your install? Are you still seeing it?
Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2003-01-20 16:54:47 EST
Need hints on reproduction.
Comment 4 Thomas Woerner 2003-01-21 04:54:32 EST
I have installed the beta4 (en_US) with german keyboard layout and have upgraded
to the last packages from beehive.

$ cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n

I've also seen this on several installations now. The language selection
displays the yes/no in some unusual language and it happened with some
other dialogs, too.

OK, it turns out this is reproducible by putting LC_COLLATE=C in 
/etc/sysconfig/i18n. No idea yet _why_ that would be the case.

Filed upstream with explanation and fix as:


Will build a new GDM with a patch.
Comment 8 Owen Taylor 2003-02-03 15:24:37 EST fixes the problem for me.
