GV 3.6.2 is known to have this bug. It should be fixed in release 3.6.3. 
I'm currently at the university, but at home I've got a self-made source 
rpm of version 3.6.3 with some additional patches (mostly from bugs and 
patches on sv.gnu.org/projects/gv), made for Fedora core 5 and 6. Probably 
it will work with Fedora 7, too.

You may feel free to ask me to send you a copy.
