Description bjl 2002-11-01 02:23:05 UTC
Description of Problem:
The "redhat-config-network" utility will crash when left open for an extended
period of time.  The given error is "too many open files".  Network connectivity
is unaffected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:
Open "redhat-config-network".  Leave it open for approximately 45-60 minutes. 
Eventually the application will crash.

There's probably a file.close() call missing in the Python code, somewhere.
