1.111.1. RHBA-2011:0091: bug fix update

Updated piranha packages that fix several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise 5.
Piranha provides high-availability and load balancing services for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It includes various tools to administer and configure the Linux Virtual Server (LVS), as well as the heartbeat and failover components. LVS is a dynamically-adjusted kernel routing mechanism that provides load balancing, primarily for Web and FTP servers.
This update fixes the following bugs: * Previously, timeout values for both TCP and UDP sessions returned to the default when both load directors were rebooted simultaneously. With this update, an option to delay the start of LVS is introduced. ( BZ#453451)
* Previously, the pulse daemon failed to parse the load average using "load_monitor = ruptime". With this update, pulse parses the load average correctly. ( BZ#550126)
* Previously, piranha did not work when SELinux was enabled. With this update, piranha runs as expected with SELinux. ( BZ#604742)
All piranha users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
