Description of problem:
I click System Settings and then Network. The attached error message shows up.
I can always reproduce it on the same installation but I can't always reproduce
it on a different installation.
The obvious 'from gtk import *' to bring timeout_add into maindialog's namespace
is not there. This problem goes away when I add 'timeout_add=gtk.timeout_add'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click the red hat.
2. Click System Settings.
3. Click Network.

or "from gtk import *" ... well, I know...
I've been able to duplicate this only when I use reiserfs as the root fs.
Three installs with reiserfs had this issue, four installs with ext3 were
fine. This was all done on the same machine, and with the same install discs.
My first login to each install was with the root user, first action taken was
to open redhat-config-network.
I can confirm that it only happened when I did a kickstart install with
reiserfs. Installs with ext3 were fine.
try to move away either
(but not both :)
