Updated kbd packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The kbd packages provide tools for managing console behavior on a Linux system, including the keyboard, screen fonts, virtual terminals and font files.

Bug Fix

Prior to this update, the "bin/unicode_start" script was called twice. As a consequence, "unicode_start" with environment variables set to "BASH_ENV=~/.bashrc" and "TERM=linux" could enter an infinite loop. This update modifies the "/etc/unicode_start" init script so that "unicode_start" is now called once and no longer causes a loop.
All users of kbd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
