This is the late-breaking bug that needs to be added to the
RHEL3-U8 errata. Can you set the appropriate fields in motion?
Request exception, this is a bug was found by developer during unit testing.
crash utility on x86_64 using arugument "vm -p" fails with a read error.
Also to clarify, this is not a beta blocker. Would be nice if the package
gets pick up by GA.
Fix checked into RHEL-3 CVS, crash version 4.0-2.29.
