Comment 3 Peter Jones 2008-01-31 18:09:51 EST
I'm fine with fixing this if a patch is supplied, but this isn't something to
which we're going to devote engineering time, especially for 5.2 .
Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-01-31 18:25:19 EST
Development Management has reviewed and declined this request.  You may appeal
this decision by reopening this request.
