Description Tim W. 2007-04-11 17:50:21 UTC
Description of problem:
Whenever I select 'manual' from the help menu, the application crashes.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qa system-config-bind

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Using an X session, remotely connect (via ssh) to the server as root
2.  Run 'system-config-bind'
3.  Click 'help' then 'manual'
4.  Watch system-config-bind crash and burn
Actual results:
system-config-bind crashes.  From the command line:
The program 'bindconf' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadIDChoice (invalid resource ID chosen for this connection)'.

Expected results:
I expected to see the help manual

I tried to reproduce the error at the console on the server, but when I
performed the steps to reproduce the problem, the manual just didn't show up --
the application did not crash.
