The fix for this, which is attached to the bug report you've
provided a URL for above, is committed to the X.Org CVS stable
6.8.x branch, and is already integrated into the 6.8.2 release
which is in RHEL4 U1 update.

Once RHEL4 U1 is available, if after upgrading to the new release
you still encounter a problem, you may contact Red Hat Global Support
Services for the problem, and they will open an engineering ticket.

Setting status to "ERRATA".
