 Mandriva Linux Advisory                                   MDKA-2006:002
 Package : mdkonline
 Date    : January 2, 2006
 Affected: 10.1, 10.2, 2006.0, Corporate 3.0
 Problem Description:
 A bug in the mdkupdate cron job (when automatic update mode is enabled)
 prevents $ENV{USER} from being defined, which kills mdkupdate before
 performing the updates.
 The mdkapplet GUI is now refreshed and doesn't stall anymore when waiting
 for configuration or installation operations to finish prior to
 re-drawing itself.
