1.87.1. RHBA-2010:0933: bug fix update
Updated NetworkManager packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
NetworkManager is a system network service that manages network devices and connections, attempting to keep active network connectivity when available. It manages Ethernet, wireless, mobile broadband (WWAN), and PPPoE devices, and provides VPN integration with a variety of different VPN services.
* Prior to this update, stopping the messagebus service (either manually, or during a routine system shutdown) may have caused certain NetworkManager components to terminate unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. With this update, the underlying source code has been modified to target this issue, and NetworkManager components now exit with 0 return code when the messagebus service is stopped. ( BZ#653345
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
