Proposed patch added to Mozilla bug.

Comment 3 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2011-09-16 17:07:47 UTC
The proposed patch was accepted and committed upstream.

Comment 5 RHEL Program Management 2011-10-07 16:01:34 UTC
Since RHEL 6.2 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.

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.

Comment 6 jared jennings 2012-06-20 14:50:57 UTC
The upstream patch appears to have made it into RHEL 6, thanks to Bug 799192. I've updated nss-util to 3.13.3-2.el6, according to RHSA-2012:0973-04, and gone through the steps to reproduce from https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=686761. I found that crlutil now works as expected.
