Hi TJ,

Sounds like this is worthy of a report on our bug tracking system so it 
won't get lost. http://bugs.mageia.org/ is the place to go. Your report is 
clear enough to be the basis for a good bug report. Hopefully members of 
the bugsquad team will know the appropiate package to file the report 
against or forward your report upstream.
