Description of problem:
After installing kernel 2.6.6-1.427, all attempts to
use bridging, via brctl, fail with the utility
immediately coring.

A search through kernel changelogs show a number
of changes in the 2.6.6-2.6.7 timeframe to the
kernel about bridging, and bridge-util changelogs
show changes that track the kernel changes.

An upgrade to the current bridge-util (1.0.4)
fixed the problem for me.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run brctl

Actual Results:  Segmentation fault.

Expected Results:  Bridging.

Additional info:

This renders bridging completely non-functional under
this kernel.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
