   Are you saying that ABRT didn't download debuginfo packages?  For a while
now (not just F15) debuginfo isn't installed at install time.  It just
automatically gets downloaded when ABRT tries to generate the backtrace and
it caches them in /var rather than installing them as full RPMs on the
system.  If ABRT didn't actually download the debugs that's actually a bug
and you probably should report it.

   Not that I specifically agree with it but popup windows like the about
window are dismissed with the Esc key rather than a close button.
Gnome-shell has some minimalistic design decisions in it which will take
some getting used to like the lack of a minimize button and the alt button
press for a shutdown.  That last one seems fine for desktops which I run
24x7 but not necessarily laptops which I tend to shutdown and pack away.
