Yes, they somehow sneeked through reviews. This doesn't invalidate what 
I said.
It only proves my impression of Fedora quality standards being low and 
about the quality of reviews.

Well, ... yes, we have a lot of semifunctional stuff in Fedora, which 
should never have been released.

At least I am having the impression Fedora 11 has derailed more  into a 
rawhide shapshot but an end-users suitable distro (which it once used to 
be). - But this is off-topic wrt. moblin.
