After applying all updates, the tool hangs on scanning installed applications. See screenshot.
Steps to Reproduce:
I'm not sure what is causing this problem and how to start it. At some time something becomes inconsistent and it hangs.
I had thoughts that the problem would be related to some extra yum plugins I have in my system, but even disabling all plugins, the problem persisted.
In Fedora 10 the application hangs, clicking on close button makes the window close, but gpk-update-viewer remains running in background. I had to kill it manually.
On Fedora 11 it has the same behavior, but quitting the application seems to works around this issue.
On Fedora 10, I could 'fix' the problem (apparently) setting ScanDesktopFiles=false' in /etc/PackageKit/PackageKit.conf and rebooting the machine.
Build Date & Platform:
I dont have many information about Fedora 11, but attached a log from a friend of mine. Believe his machine was up to date with latest repo packages
Attached are log of packagekitd and gpk-update-viewer for Fedora 10; and gpk-update-viewer in Fedora 11.
