Can't see how broken it could be - it's a standard set of Ximian packages 
installed over RH6.2. Possibly it doesn't like running over a network - does 
anyone else use NCD thin clients with Gnome? In any case, Windowmaker didn't 
have problems running off O2 workstations.

Again, a stock Ximian package. No matter - it's no longer installed, and in 
any case, most people I know at work prefer to do file management with an 
xterm anyway (and the few who don't use mc).
