Actual results:

kandy pops up an error dialog.

Expected results:

This is still there in Fedora Core devel
Comment 2 Aleksey Nogin 2004-04-23 15:35:44 EDT
I also reported this upstream - see
Comment 3 Aleksey Nogin 2004-04-28 03:22:33 EDT
Upstream maintainer wrote (in
http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=80228) that he does not have acces
to a lockdev-based distro and he would like to get a patch.
Comment 4 Petr Rockai 2005-03-17 09:24:14 EST
I fixed the bug in upstream CVS. Expect the fix to appear in next KDE and a 
following Fedora release. I will consider backporting this to 3.4 though.
