Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake This update fixes several minor issues: - some GUIes (eg: rpmdrake) would crash on clicking on the close button while they load (bug #35230) - draksec was crashing if the administrator refused to install (bug #38911) - localdrake: After changing the localization language from drakconf in a high security level, the permissions of /etc/sysconfig/i18n were changed such that the file was only readable by root. This caused graphical login via kdm to fail (bug #39027)
