Please attach the complete traceback to this bug report.  What you've pasted here is only the least specific portion, so we don't actually know where the problem is occurring, or even what the exact problem is.

Also I note that you are reporting this with RHEL 4.4, which is quite old at this point.  Can you please try again with the latest update release of RHEL 4 and let us know if this problem persists?  Thanks.

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2008-12-10 19:15:58 UTC
The information we've requested above is required in order to review this problem report further and diagnose or fix the issue if it is still present.  Since it has been thirty days or more since we first requested additional information, we're assuming the problem is either no longer present in the current RHEL release, or that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to "CLOSED: INSUFFICIENT_DATA".  If you still experience this problem after updating to our latest RHEL release and can provide the information previously requested, please feel free to reopen the bug report.

Thank you in advance.
