4.325. tmpwatch

An updated tmpwatch package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The tmpwatch utility recursively searches through specified directories and removes files which have not been accessed in a specified period of time. Tmpwatch is normally used to clean up directories which are used for temporarily holding files (for example, /tmp).

Bug Fix

When searching for files or directories to remove, tmpwatch was reporting all failures to access these files or directories. This included expected access failures due to the restrictive default configuration of FUSE mount points. With this update, tmpwatch now silently ignores all EACCES errors, and the expected access failures regarding FUSE mount points are no longer reported.
All users are advised to upgrade to this updated tmpwatch package, which fixes this bug.
