Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A

Details

An updated libX11 package that fixes a bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The libX11 package contains the core X11 protocol client library.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, in the 64-bit mode, libX11 computed addresses using the 32-bit
arithmetic. As a consequence, under heavy load, applications running in the X
environment terminated unexpectedly. A patch has been provided to address this
issue, and the crashes no longer occur in the described scenario. (BZ#736175)

Users of libX11 are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this
bug.
