Thanks for your report.
This will be fixed in RHEL 5. A RHEL update containing an updated list would
be very likely already obsolete by the time it gets thoroughly tested and
issued as a part of an RHEL update release. The upstream configuration file
contains updated data about the JP whois servers, you can use it instead of
/etc/jwhois.conf shipped in the RHEL jwhois package.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
