Internal RFE bug #127957 entered.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-20 16:50:24 EDT
This problem is resolved in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL
4). Red Hat does not currently plan to provide a resolution for this in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux update for currently deployed systems.

With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in response
to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a conservative approach when
evaluating changes for inclusion in maintenance updates for currently deployed
products. The primary objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware
platform support and to resolve critical defects.
