Piruit (Add/Remove Software) crashes several times.



Folks,

Just be aware that your mileage may vary but Pirut
(Add/Remove Software) isn't very reliable and expect
it to crash on you.  I have used this program several
times and several times it has crashed and wiped out
hours of downloads in an instant.  Yes, ALL of the
cache downloaded RPM files are gone in an instant!

My last download was 4 hours and it all but went down
the tubes and all for natch.  No, I will not file a
Bugzilla for this one as I am too upset to do it.
This was reported by many in FC5-T3 and it was well known
that pirut was pretty bad.  So, FC5 installation IMHO
is the worst of the worst compared to previous releases.

So as long as you do not go outside the default installation
parameters given to you, you might have a successful install
but once you venture outside of these boundaries, your house
of cards just might start crumbling around you.

Here is the crash dump code....  do with it whatever you want.
