Description Russell Coker 2006-07-18 20:59:54 EDT
The same problem described in bug 199344 for rawhide also applies to RHEL4.  I 
believe that this feature is worth adding if there is to be an errata for 
RHEL4 coreutils for another reason.

I have attached a patch to fix this.

Also I am running a network of RHEL3 and RHEL4 machines.  It would be handy if 
runuser could be added as an enhancement to RHEL3 so that I could use the same 
daemon start scripts on all systems.
