Comment 1 Miloslav Trmač 2004-09-28 18:40:01 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this
version of
the product and I was unable to replicate the bug with setuptool-1.15.
Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some
older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the
problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/

wow.  Three years!

No, I don't expect this will be interesting to many folks any longer.
 If I see it again, though, I'll definitely wander out to fdr.us and
re-open something there.

'stoo bad Bugzill doesn't support the mass movement of bugs from one
bz to another, or we could just move all the old and crusty tickets
out that way.
