Hummmmm...very interesting.  Thanks for the info.  I searched fedora  
bugzilla and didn't see anything listed.  If it happened to you with a  
clean install
and me with an upgrade, looks like a definite code defect somewhere.

I'll open a fedora bug also.  Might be something related to the distribution.

It's fairly easy to reproduce.  Must not be alot of EPSON R300's running FC5.
