After spending a whole day on this,
I have come to the conclusion that there is a serious error in gallery2
as packaged by Fedora-6.
The file .../gallery2/install/steps/AuthenticationStep.class
contains two incomprehensible errors,
as described in the correction patch below.

I don't understand how whoever put this package together
failed to see this error,
since the program cannot have run as far as I can see.
