Hello. I'm running GnewSense, an Ubuntu derivative. When in Synaptic, after clicking on System then Repo's, the Repo window appears for a fraction of a second, disappears, then a window appears saying the repos have changed, reload same. Because of this, repos cannot be changed. Any one have an idea what might be going on? Thanks for your time.

What happens if you go to System > Administration > Software Sources? Does it exhibit the same behavior, or does it open correctly?
