--- Comment #6 from Petr Pisar <> ---
It's the correct issue. It talks about this very same problem. It's not
important whether the disputed item is an icon in Gnome or a Perl module in
@INC. It also discusses the (un)helpfulnes of weak dependencies.

The line for me is that a module load failure is handled by the code. In this
case the error message does not looks so, but there is a special handling in
the code instead of a plain "require Foo;" or so. Also the documentations
clearly states it's an optional feature.

In an ideal world this package would declare a "password authentication" as an
optional feature and connect it to the dependency on IO::Pty. And your package
would require the "password authentication" feature. The reality is that RPM
not support it.
