No error messages
I have attached a patch that fixes the problem for me.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Please, see an alternative patch in bug #1082014 (which is the same bug for RHEL 5). That one takes a different approach, which is in line with the approach taken by upstream.
