Hi,
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 15:00:30 EDT
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no longer valid!
