I am quite sure that I had this same problem with RedHat 9, but did
not report it ... sorry.
I don't know if this is a 'usbutils' thing, but it is the closest
package I could find.
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/
