1.105.1. RHBA-2010:0656: bug fix update

An updated patch package that fixes several bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The patch package is used to apply changes, such as those from diff files, to text files.
This updated package package provides a fix for the following bug:
* previously, SELinux file contexts were not preserved on patched files. This has been corrected. ( BZ#229329)
* previously, patches for files whose names contain spaces could not be applied. A change has been backported to allow filenames with spaces. ( BZ#431887)
* The "-g" option was not handled correctly by the patch command. This has been fixed. ( BZ#553624)
All users of patch are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
