RAWHIDE means resolved by latest update; if I am correct.
I have used the latest iso's ("Roswell 2", dated 18-08-2001). Are there any 
more recent iso's? If not, should the bug not be reopened?

No.  Rawhide is rawhide.  Bug is a done deal.  Roswell2 is not the latest.
Roswell2 is the latest CDROM beta.  Rawhide is the latest developmental
