takes some time in the current situation :-)

I'm going through bugs assigned to me and attempting to clean some of the older,
fixed ones up.

This bug hasn't changed in over a year old now.  Are you still seeing the problem? 

(This a batch message is being sent to all my bugs that haven't changed in a year)

Comment 2 Thomas M Steenholdt 2005-05-12 19:00:30 UTC
The later versions of Gnome (indeed the 2.8 version included in FC3) includes
the ability to assign a key-combination to the "lock" function, so this bug is
no longer valid!
