Description of problem:Error reads as follows;
 Application "/usr/bin/python" (process 17243) has crashed due to a fatal error.
 (Segmentation fault)

This error is consistent when ever I run the "Red Hat Update Agent".  It happens
during the downloading of the RPM list.  Obviously the process number is
different each time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: every time app is run

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run Red Hat Update Agent
Actual results: I can't update my system with the provided tool,  so I must
manually patch and repair any security issues.

Expected results: Red Hat Update Agent should find all missing patches and
updates,  as well as dependences, and install them.

Additional info: I'm not sure this is relevent, but I'm useing Enlightenment on
Gnome with Sawfish,  but this problem also happened with Gnome only.

python should not segfault unless one of its libraries is segfaulting.
Please try:

python -c "import rpm; print rpm.opendb()"

Does this segfault as well?

On my environment, this problem occured only at the first logout after updating
python. But this problem hasn't occured at the second or later logout.

How's the second or later logout?

xSeries brand team in Japan said, "The problem hasn't fixed yet.
However we decided to avoid this issue by a documentation."
Therefore, I suppose it is not necessary for us to investigate this issue deeper.

How do we handle this issue?
How's changing the status into `defer' with `WILL_FIX_LATER'?
(Or changing the status into `reject' with `Documented')

I think the resolution of this bug should be set to "Documented".  Thanks.
