	No, the maintainer removed it from the list.

	That's because Padraig assigned the bug to himself, not cc-ing
gnome-panel-maint and it dropped out of my sight.

	Blah, blah, blah. Talk to the bug report Bill.

	George is away for another week and a bit and asked me to handle any
critical GDM problems ...

	The patch is big, I'm nervous about large changes with only one release
to go, but on the flip side it can only effect accessibility if there
are serious problems with the patch and my hunch is that George would be
happy for you to go ahead.

	So - its your call, I think. If you think its important enough to risk
introducing regressions in accessible login, then I'll be happy to
review it more carefully and approve.
