Fedora Core 3 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 FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Thanks for report and sorry for so long time without the fix applied. I missed
that bugzilla somehow when I got the package few months ago. Built as
wvdial-1.60-5.fc9 , closing RAWHIDE.
