This behavior is consistant with what other OSes (tried FreeBSD, OpenBSD and
NetBSD) do, so it's probably adhering to standards.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-08-04 16:25:07 EDT
Red Hat Linux and Red Hat Powertools are currently no longer supported by Red
Hat, Inc. In an effort to clean up bugzilla, we are closing all bugs in MODIFIED
state for these products.

However, we do want to make sure that nothing important slips through the
cracks. If, in fact, these issues are not resolved in a current Fedora Core
Release (such as Fedora Core 5), please open a new issues stating so. Thanks.
