Description Darin Nelson 2001-08-06 15:40:38 EDT
An extraneuos ampersand on an 'exec' line (55 or so) of the
/etc/hotplug/net.agent script causes bad error message.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert a pcmcia network card into a redhat 7.1 laptop


Actual Results:  Look at the system messages (/var/log/messages).  The line:
"Date hostname /etc/hotplug/net.agent: register event not handled"
is issued.  This is not true.  An added ampersand on line 55 of the script
for the default exec case causes thread to return.  Mesg is generated.  The
script does its job, but the error is issued (erroneously).

Expected Results:  No error.

Additional info:  If you remove the '&' all is good.
