it is Fedora 11 what you got ... As I said I have done it all on my F13 and
all worked as described.
At least under F13, the default rules are regenerated by the python app, filed
in iptables and ip6tables files, and then formatted for display (I looked up
the source code).
So it is the python app system-config-firewall that fails.
I can not do anything beyond what I have suggested to check.
You can contact Red Hat developer directly and ask him (he should know it).
Good luck.
