Patch fixing the problem.
Despite using bash'isms some rhts-* scripts use /bin/sh in the shebang line.
On systems, where /bin/sh is not bash these scripts fail to run because of syntax errors.
The attached patch fixes the problem.
Does this need to be in a customer only hot-fix release along with 866507?
This is not urgent from my point.
Right, this is not too serious since on all conventional RHEL and Fedora systems /bin/sh will be bash and the rhts scripts work fine in bash's POSIX mode as far as I know.
Fixed in rhts-4.52-3.
This has now been released
