Using the above information, this is an easy demonstration of the problem:

1. watch -d cat /proc/sys/fs/file-nr /proc/sys/fs/inode-state /proc/sys/fs/inode-nr

2. redhat-config-network

Good QA work, bugfix errata released ONE YEAR after the fix... :-(( 
 
I sure hope this is a mistake, and not how it's supposed to work.
