Hi Leonard,

When the issue came up for me, I went to CentOS.org with the intent of
posting a question about the bug, but found the announcement right at
the top. I didn't think to echo it on the mailing list because I
always assumed that those on the mailing list were more informed than
those who use the forum. You make a good point. But these upstream
bugs are pretty rare -- the most common problems I've found with
CentOS are issues with the add-on repositories for non-core
applications -- and that's usually a matter of updates in the pipes.

BTW, has anyone been able to figure out a pattern with this particular
bug? My two computers with nVidia video chips have the problem, my
laptop and my brother's computer (both running on Intel video chips)
don't have the problem. I'm curious if all those who have this issue
are using nVidia cards.
