Description of problem:
There is a small bug in the netfilter-module "recent" on kernels <2.6.14. A bug on the netfilter-list says it's fixed in newer releases. Could this small patch be incorporated in the FC3/FC4-kernels as well, please?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs.
A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.
Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.

Tested, and seems to work fine. Since it was reported this "decides" at
boot-time if it will work for the current running system or not I even rebooted
several times, and always retested with success.
