Description John Mellor 2003-01-25 07:00:49 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030115

Description of problem:
In two places during a full custom gui install, I was not able to get focus to
an updateable field without resorting to tricks.

1) On the window asking for the new root password twice, focus was not possible
until I right-clicked and selected default input method.  Operation was normal
after this fault.

2) On the window asking for the monitor configuration, I was unable to obtain
focus again to correct the hsync and vsync values for my monitor.  The
right-click and select default input method trick was once again used to work
around this bug.

Since it happened twice, it is probably somewhat repeatable.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install, answering questions as needed.


Expected Results:  Loss of focus in two places.

Additional info:

While a workaround is present, it is highly non-intuitive and should therefore
be treated as a fatal installation error, as most Customers will not discover
the trick and simply abort the installation.
