rawhide stability

On Itanium systems, the gtk2 update from January 14th broke the whole
GNOME desktop environment and rhgb (at least). I've file bug #178005
regarding this issue. And I'm still experiencing the SELinux problems
exhibited in http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-selinux-list/2006-
January/msg00049.html. Since GNOME is currently broken on Itanium, I
can't tell what about evolution, gnome-panel and gnome-terminal.
