RSA signature forgery issues in BouncyCastle < 1.34

From BouncyCastle 1.34 release notes:
Security Advisory If you are using RSA with a public exponent of three you
must upgrade to this release if you want to avoid recent forgery attacks that
have been described against specific implementations of the RSA signature
java-1.4.2-gcj-compat in FC5 ship with BC 1.31 and may thus be affected.
I've imported Bouncy Castle 1.34 into FC-5 update-testing:
and FC-6 updates-testing:
I pushed bouncycastle-1.34-2.fc6 and java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-188.8.131.52-40jpp_83rh.4
to final and built bouncycastle-1.34-2.fc7 in Rawhide. Closing.
