Sorry, closed this bug as a dupe by mistake. Too many bugs open at once.
This should be working in the next major release of RHEL, due to work ongoing in Fedora. If you require this fixed in an update release of RHEL, please talk to your support representative who will raise it through the appropriate channels. Thanks for the bug report.
