Although it's far from obvious, all Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against
"devel", not "test#". Moving this, so it doesn't get lost.

This has been a bulk message. We return you now to your regularly scheduled
program, already in progress.

I'm on F7 Test4, which uses 1.3.7, and I get the same behavior. Would you like 
to re-open this bug, or shall I dare? ;-)
