Ahhh... I remember you name know. It's been a while since you posted that.

And I agree with you that you do have a problem. What it is I do not
know. But it might have something to do with you update from Fedora 8.
Much has changed since then. In Fedora and I would think your install.

May I suggest that you keep up with your Bugzilla report. *However* you
might not see anything until after the Fedora 11 release. Only a week to
go I would imagine that everyone is very busy. BTW there is always, has
been in the past, a flood of updates that did not make it into the ISOs.
Perhaps then you will see something encouraging.

Best of luck.
