Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-games

If I start gnibbles, I cannot select "Network game" in the Game menu. It is grayed out.

Interestingly, if I start a game, and then end it, the Network game option is no longer grayed out. However, it still does not work...

gnome-games dropped network play capability in 2009 but this menu item was accidentally left there. I am remarking this as low since it doesn't crash the game or have any negative effects, nor is it a missing feature since it was intentionally removed. It also is not on the default CD.
