is there a reason 201920 is private?
Sorry about that. 201920 is this same bug, but for RHEL5. I don't fully
understand all of the details, but the main reason that RHEL5 bugs are private
is that (a) RHEL is a commercial product, (b) bugs opened against it may contain
information that we cannot make public, (c) the product is not yet available.
The reason I marked this bug as duplicate of a RHEL5 bug is for my own
housekeeping. The two bugs were identical and I wanted to link them in bugzilla
so I knew the problem was fixed in Fedora Core and RHEL5. Looking at it now, it
probably would have made sense to close the RHEL5 bug as a duplicate of this one
and post the closing details here. But it's been solved and the bugs are closed.
Hope that explains it.
