Confirmed that the bug also happend in RedHat 7.2
Changing Severity to High because is really a big bug.

Comment 2 Florian La Roche 2003-01-22 17:34:25 UTC
Please change this to "-s" to have it work correctly. If another erratum rpm
is done for older Red Hat Linux releases, this patch will also be included.

Thanks a lot,

Florian La Roche
