This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.  This request will
be reviewed for a future Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.

This has been fixed a while back upstream r1532, and in Fedora
avahi-0.6.21-3.fc8 and is a duplicate of 246875.
