Comment 2 Radek Bíba 2009-05-11 10:38:57 UTC
Is this a duplicate of bug 291461 and therefore fixed as of RHEL 5.3?

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2009-05-11 11:39:01 UTC
This is another bug, where the user pressed "Cancel", while waiting for the interface to come up.

Comment 6 Branislav Blaškovič 2014-06-03 12:33:03 UTC
Can not longer reproduce this with system-config-network-

dlg is now checked for NoneType so error dialog with error message should show up.
