1.94.1. RHBA-2010:0668: bug fix update

An updated oddjob package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
oddjob is a D-BUS service which performs particular tasks for clients which connect to it and issue requests using the system-wide message bus.
This updated package provides patches for the following bugs:
* previously, the configuration settings between systems which support both 32-bit and 64-bit binaries could not be shared. This was because the locations of the oddjob "mkhomedir" helper binary differed between 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the package on such systems. With this update, the helper binary has been moved to the same location on all architectures. ( BZ#476255)
* previously, the oddjob_request and clients would print an error message, when running on systems on which SELinux had been disabled. This was because these clients could not determine the SELinux context of the running oddjobd daemon. With this update, the clients do not attempt to do so anymore and the issue is resolved. ( BZ#510457)
All users of D-BUS are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
