Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-08-09 18:08:53 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 3 Richard W.M. Jones 2013-10-30 18:25:04 UTC
This Bugzilla has been reviewed by Red Hat and is not planned on being
addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, and therefore will be closed.
If this bug is critical to production systems, please contact your Red
Hat support representative and provide sufficient business
justification. Issue is already fixed in RHEL-6/7.
