I am sorry, but it is now too late in the RHEL-5 release cycle. RHEL-5.10 (the next RHEL-5 minor release) is going to be the first production phase 2  release of RHEL-5. Since phase 2 we'll be addressing only security and critical issues.
This one issue is fixed in RHEL-6 therefore I am closing the bug as NEXTRELEASE.
Reopened due to bug 973273. It would be great to have it the same as in RHEL-6.
