Details

Updated dropwatch packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The dropwatch package contains a utility that provides packet monitoring
services.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, the dropwatch utility could become unresponsive because
it was waiting for a deactivation acknowledgement to be issued by an already
deactivated or stopped service. With this update, dropwatch detects an attempt
to deactivate/stop an already deactivated/stopped service and no longer hangs.
(BZ#725464)

All users of dropwatch are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix this bug.
