No idea what to file. And as I'm going to do a fresh install of F15 anyway
(probably tonight), it could be gone after that, and I'll try to find out.
I've examined this further on the machine where it's broken:
It's a discrepancy between the config values seen by
/usr/libexec/packagekitd and /usr/bin/gpk-prefs.
packagekitd runs as root, gpk-prefs as normal user.
packagekitd is getting the 86400 value. gpk-prefs the 3600,
and it doesn't change root's.
Originally, I've been running with a "Daily" setting, but haven't received
any update notifications either and usually clicked "Check Now" to install
them as an alternative to Yum. If this won't be reproducible with F15 fresh
install, I won't have any interest in it anymore.
