- Previously, it was possible for the user to log out of the system or shut it down while the PackageKit update tool was running and writing to the RPM database (rpmdb). Consequently, rpmdb could become damaged and inconsistent due to the unexpected termination and cause various problems with subsequent operation of the rpm, yum, and PackageKit utilities. This update modifies PackageKit to not allow shutting down the system when a transaction writing to rpmdb is active, thus fixing this bug.
- After resuming the system or re-enabling the display, an icon could appear in the notification area with an erroneous tooltip that read "Session active, not inhibited, screen idle. If you see this test, your display server is broken and you should notify your distributor." and included a URL to an external web page. This error message was incorrect, had no effect on the system and could be safely ignored. In addition, linking to an external URL from the notification and status area is unwanted. To prevent this, the icon is no longer used for debugging idle problems.
