Comment 1 Erik Nguyen 2003-08-20 17:09:17 EDT
Justification for upgrading the priority/severity of this bug: exec functions
are not conforming to POSIX standards
Comment 2 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:41:26 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
