That is very interesting. So if we can hold off for RHEL 5 then the 
problem magically goes away? I'll see if we can do that.

(This is for a large department's worth of linux boxes. I don't manage 
them, but do have permission to install software in a space for shared 
software. Thus I typically can't install RPMs and can only advise when 
it comes to OS versions.)
