Hi!
Could someone test this bug
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=617651
with Gnome in RC2 and confirm if he/she can see it regularly too?

Also I don't understand clearly what a "shipstopper" means, but if
this crash is indeed so clearly reproducible and brings down X every
time, would this be a shipstopper?

This kind of bug could be fixed with an online update, so I would not
call it a shipstopper. Still if the fix looks good, I'm sure Coolo
will evaluate for taking it into the final build.

I see as shipstopper the following but let's ask Coolo what he thinks:
* a serious data loss or security problem right after start that we
could not easily fix wiht an update.
* anything in the update stack or installation that would not let you
install the system completely and update to fix the problem

But "Coolo" just wrote,

Coolo was faster in sending his answer and I did not see his mail before I
send mine.

A ship stopper at this point basically means: it's impossible to fix
with an online update and is so severe that many people will notice it.

Which seems to be a variation of my two points. We do not disagree, he
just added the part "many people". And if in doubt: Coolo is the release
manager ;)
