I guess I won't be able to test the fix:

"To access these Red Hat Network benefits, customers must log in to Red Hat Network using a Red Hat login associated with at least one active subscription to a Red Hat product or service."

Not my case, sorry, only CentOS here, and I'm not sure there's a CentOS 5.5 Beta out there ...
