1.55.1. RHBA-2010:0314: bug fix update

Updated firstboot packages that fix a bug are now available.
The firstboot utility runs after installation. It guides the user through a series of steps that allows for easier configuration of the machine.
These updated packages address the following issue:
* Clicking [Change Network Configuration] from firstboot's network configuration page launched a separate network configuration window. If the user then clicked [Forward] on the still-visible main window, the separate configuration window became hidden behind the full-screen main window.
Further mouse-clicks would be ineffectual and it could appear to the user that the system had become unresponsive. It was necessary to use the alt+tab keys to reveal the hidden configuration window.
Code has been added to the networking.py source file to modify the behavior of the network configuration and main windows. Now the configuration window will stay on top if the user clicks outside its boundary. (BZ#511984)
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
