According to the thread on Slashdot, Mandrake had that problem, they 
thought they fixed it, they did their release, and it turned out the 
problem wasn't really fixed. I would imagine the same thing happened 
with Fedora: they probably thought they fixed it, same as Mandrake. 
Someone also said Gentoo had the same problem, so I'd say if Fedora 
deserves to be slammed, then so do Mandrake and Gentoo.
