Funny you should ask,  I spent most of yesterday with my new pcmcia smartcard
reader, crashing kernels and writing policy.  So I have some fixes that will go

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are

maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.
