Attachments are actually derived from bug #733524.  bug #734764 is not relevant.

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2011-08-31 14:25:46 UTC
I wasn't able to reproduce this on unpatched ghostscript-8.70.

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2011-08-31 14:54:14 UTC
I wasn't able to reproduce this with ghostscript-8.70-6.el6.x86_64 -- in other words, this is not a regression compared to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0.

Comment 6 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-08-31 14:58:11 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support

Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2011-09-02 10:56:02 UTC
