For official Red Hat Enterprise Linux support, please log into the Red Hat
support website at http://www.redhat.com/support and file a support ticket,
or alternatively contact Red Hat Global Support Services at 1-888-RED-HAT1
to speak directly with a support associate and escalate an issue.

A Red Hat support rep will assist you in determining wether this is a
configuration problem or a real bug, and then gather the necessary
details needed to help diagnose the problem.

Thanks, I've carboned myself on the upstream bug for tracking.  Once
upstream agrees upon a fix for the issue, and it's committed to CVS,
we'll review it again and consider including the official upstream
fix in a future update.
