From Siddesh Poyrekar (GSS production support):
I have attached patch adapted to RHEL-5. I can confirm that it resolves the issue. I've given a test package to the customer as well. Customer has confirmed that the patch resolves the issue.
The reproducer step should actually be:
$ php OrderCheckService.php
Created attachment 351546 [details]
I've made test packages available which should fix this issue. These
packages are unsupported, have not been through the standard Red Hat
QA process, and are not recommended for use on production systems.
Use of these packages may prevent you from (automatically) upgrading
to any asynchronous security errata which are issued before the
release of RHEL 5.5 due to version mismatches.
Please record any feedback on use of these test packages (positive or
negative!) on this bug report.
