	I've put up a new version of the Fedora AccessGrid  2.3 RPM which fixes the
	above problem (with the Debug versions of the Gnome menu entries which bring
	up a terminal). The new RPMs can be found at:
	With the Debug version menu entries, I've also added a 2 second delay before
	the terminal disappears, to give a bit of a chance of reading any error
	messages. There were some other minor fixes to other menu entries, like the
	"Node Service" menu entry which is now working.
	The updated FC2 RPMs were released last week, and the FC1 just yesterday.
	I'm just making this announcement for those people not using up2date.
	If you are doing an update rather than an install, you will need to
	re-register the system shared-applications by issuing the following as root:
	    agpm.py --post-install(This is a result of a bug in
	AccessGrid-2.3-3.i386.rpm postun step)Doug.
