Thank you for your testing.  I would assume that the majority of our
kickstart users have crafted their files by hand or have carried over
files generated in previous releases of system-config-kickstart.  It is
entirely possible that nobody has tested this app yet.  (thats another
thing I have against full installs, people claim that it installed, but
they've never ran it or tested it....)  I will follow your bug report
and make sure that this is working by the next test release.

Again, thank you for your testing.
