From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
Root password request screen works normally, but actual calendar time
screen never opens.  Returns to console.

Console message reads:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/redhat-config-date.py", line 35, in ?
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/mainWindow.py", line 176, in __init__
    self.datePage = date_gui.datePage(self.dateBackend)
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/date_gui.py", line 154, in __init__
    ntpServer = mainWindow.dateBackend.getNtpServer()
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/dateBackend.py", line 184, in getNtpServer
    self.ntpServer = tokens[1]
IndexError: list index out of range
This program works perfectly on another machine (i586 laptop)
Files in /usr/share/redhat-config-date match between machines.

In both cases running over LAN using VNCViewer/VNCServer.  Both machines current
under "up2date". Both rpm-config-dates are version 1.5.2-10.  Was able to set
date on problem machine using
date --set=STRING
from the console

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

2. Always behaves as in description

Actual Results:  As in description
