Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-02-21 20:39:43 UTC
This issue should also affect RHEL3.

RHEL3 and RHEL4 tested with English, Japanese and Korean.

Bug #149190 is somewhat worrisome, but I suspect this is specific to glib2 or
gcc of FC4 so not an issue here.  No sign of this behavior on RHEL3/FC3/RHEL4.

Bug #149304 has been discovered affecting both RHEL3 and RHEL4 builds, working
on this issue now.

This older bugfix update for U1 would be superceded.

Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-02-22 06:16:13 UTC
Bug #149304 seems to be a regression, and happens often enough to be serious. 
Attempting to fix this before pushing to QA.
