I am seeing the same problem.

I am having the same problem. The steps to reproduce above do not show selecting
"Save current setup" on logout dialog box. But even when this is done, the color
comes back as black.

I submitted this as a service ticket to Red Hat Installation Support (#233703)
and they were unable to reproduce the problem on the lab machine. So maybe this
is a hardware related problem. I am using an nVidia GeForce2 MX with 32 MB of
video ram on an eVga.com video card.

The bug is fixed upstream: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=107401

This isn't an installation or hardware issue, just a software bug.

Should be sure we have the fix in the next release.

Will RedHat put out a up2date on this?  If not, how do I get the fix and 
install it?

Comment 6 Havoc Pennington 2003-04-28 18:35:02 UTC
An update for this is very unlikely, as there are many higher-priority items
in the queue in front of it. To get a fix you would have to get the SRPM and 
integrate the patch yourself, or build all of GNOME from source in a separate

We've built latest gnome-panel in rawhide now.
