freeConfModules called with NULL pointer...

Fedora Core 2, i386.

when running system-config-network OR kudzu:

"freeConfModules called with NULL pointer. Don't do that."

crashes and sends that to stdout.

What is freeConf? I have tried Googling this with no results.

i have a fedora 1 install here i don't use but in
/usr/include/kudzu/modules.h i find
 struct confModules {
	/* <numlines> lines. Lines may be NULL. */
	char **lines;
	int numlines;
	/* have we backed up an old entry?
	 * We only want to do this once per 'session'.
	int madebackup;

void freeConfModules(struct confModules *cf);
i look alittle in cvs at anaconda/kudzu/hwconf.c and find lots of
this is way redacted and taken out of context
int configure(struct device *dev)
	struct confModules *cf;
      // do stuff
this is a dynamic memory deallocation error
one reason i don't think fedora should try to move quite so fast.....
bugs.. bugs.. everywhere
also they should use proper gnu error messages so you can find the bug !!!!!!!
try fedora bug reports or update and see if it's fixed i guess
