1.152.1. RHBA-2010:0619: bug fix update
The tmpwatch utility recursively searches through specified directories and removes files which have not been accessed in a specified period of time. tmpwatch is usually used to clean up directories containing temporary files (for example, /tmp).
* tmpwatch automatically deletes temporary directories, which previously broke some Java management functionality. With this update, this issue has been resolved and the newly added option --exclude-pattern is now used to preserve these directories. ( BZ#527425
* previously, tmpwatch called fuser (1) incorrectly, which lead to unexpected error messages when encountering a file name starting with '-' character. This issue has now been resolved and tmpwatch now calls fuser (1) correctly even for file names starting with the '-' character. ( BZ#548932
Users are advised to upgrade to this updated tmpwatch package, which resolves this issue.
