I have same problem with setroubleshoot-1.9.1-1.fc7:

1. select multiple alerts
2. right mouse click on one of them
   => alerts are unselected (except the one we right clicked)

Comment 3 John Dennis 2007-09-15 19:38:50 UTC
Multiple deletes were fixed a long time ago, I'm pretty sure those fixes made it
into the final RHEL version.

Re comment #2, just tested this feature again with setroubleshoot-1.10.0-1 and
the multi-selection persists after the right click and you're presented with a
pop up menu which includes the option to mark delete.

So as far as I can tell it works, BTW to the best of my knowledge there weren't
any changes in this area betwee, setroubleshoot-1.9.1-1.fc7 and

Could you please verify it is still failing for you. Please assure you've only
executed a single right click.

Comment 4 Jan Hutař 2007-09-17 08:56:08 UTC
there is a setroubleshoot-1.8.11-4.el5 in the RHEL 5 (also in last 5.1 snapshot 
- see /mnt/redhat/rel-eng/RHEL5.1-Server-20070913.0/5/i386/os/Server/
setroubleshoot-1.8.11-4.el5.noarch.rpm). When I selects multiple alerts using 
<Ctrl+click_on_few_alerts> and then right-click on one of selected rows, others 
are deselected and action I choose (e.g. "Mark Delete") is performed only on 
one row. I guess it is too late for 5.1 - sorry, have forget for these bugs 
somehow :-/ Could this go to 5.2?
