 Problem Description:

 This update fixes several minor issues in rpmdrake:
 - it fixes a crash due to bad timing with the X server (#41010)
 - it fix empty per importance lists of updates in rpmdrake (list
 of all updates was OK, MandrivaUpdate was OK) (#41331) (regression
 introduced in 3.95 on 2007-09-14)

 - it fixes a rare crash when canceling (#41970)
