Err -no

In my case I am not running RH8 ( a wierd mixture somewhat based on 7.3
+cvs x,gnome, gcc etc RH8)

I installed bluecurve and it installed references to the bluecurve icons
in each of my desktop files (ie they all have redhat* files linked) so
not default icons

Not a major problem for me, but the issue has come up a lot on
