Let me talk to Ed to see if we can get this into U4 with the other fstab-sync
crasher. But it might be too late.

Comment 7 RHEL Product and Program Management 2006-07-21 16:43:53 UTC
Quality Engineering Management has reviewed and declined this request.  You may appeal this decision by reopening this request.

Comment 8 Keiichi Mori 2006-07-22 00:39:32 UTC
This issue does not happen by default. But it happens whenever debug option is set.
This may prevent us from investigating further. Fix patch is very simple
(comment#1), and test case is available (comment#6). Please pick up this to 4.5,
if hal package is addressed to RHEL4.5.
