yast gtk softwaretool crashes on opensuse 11.3

hi everybody,

When i open yast in gtk searching for gnome-web-photo for example, select the
dependencies section of this package and than click one of the linked files the in gtk2 yast2 softwaretool it gets blacked out and freezes.

when i force quit by killing yast the softwaretool is telling me that is busy when i try to restart it. The only way i can get the yast-gtk2-softwaretool to work is to

killall y2base

than i get a message box:

YaST got signal 15 at YCP file PackagesUI.ycp:280
/sbin/yast2: Zeile 399:  6520 Beendet                 $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS

if i dont kill y2base i cant even start yas2softwaretool. It is telling me that
it is busy though.

starting yast2 --gtk in a terminal gives this information:

** (y2controlcenter-gnome:6405): WARNING **: error accessing /apps/yast-control-center/cc_exit_shell_on_action_start [Der Konfigurationsserver konnte nicht kontaktiert werden; mögliche Fehlerquellen sind, dass TCP/IP für ORBit nicht aktiviert ist oder auf Grund eines Systemabsturzes alte NFS-Sperren gesetzt sind.

can anybody confirm this or help me to get this fixed?
