Exclamation Yast Time/Date Crash


Clock fall down, go boom. Whenever I try to change the date/time, by whatever method I access it, it starts to open the panel to make the changes in, and the panel closes half way through loading. No error message, nada. Using Suse 9.1 Pro, trying to use YAST to change the time. How shall I proceed?

By the way: I have been able to change the date and time to the correct values via the command line, but I still need to figure out what's wrong with YaST. Can anyone tell me just what I need to do to reinstall/repair the clock setting component of YaST?

After some poking around on the search engines some more, and taking a guess, I found the solution. As a different user, I could edit the time just fine through the GUI. So, I backed up my data for my user having the trouble (which turned out to be unnecessary since the home directory persisted) and deleted the user and immediately added the user account again. This re-writ whatever was wrong.
