No, apparently the behavior is old I guess. I've been very intermittent
in my use of Fedora in recent years. Last time I used Fedora, v. 14 was
the latest and 15 was to be out shortly, and I guess I never noticed the
change. I just installed Fedora 16, followed by 15 (since it seems that
the packaging on both of these is taking a while).
