1.161.1. RHBA-2010:0058: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2010:0058
An updated pirut package that fixes various bugs is now available.
The pirut graphical package manager front end provides a set of graphical tools for managing software.
This updated pirut package includes fixes for the following bugs:
* removing a package with pirut when no repositories were configured caused pirut to exit with a Python traceback. With this update, the application does not exit with a traceback when a package is removed in the absence of any configured repositories. (BZ#444697)
* occasionally, a failed assertion check related to the progress bar, and specifically to the gtk_progress_set_percentage() function, caused the pirut package manager to exit with a traceback. This update ensures that this assertion no longer fails, thus resolving the problem. (BZ#459489)
* after upgrading to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 release, pirut began showing the epoch number as the first characters in the package group details list. With this update, package lists are once again sorted correctly. (BZ#478834)
* the "pup" graphical package manager application used an incorrectly-sized icon. (BZ#436193)
All users of pirut are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
