Updated dropwatch packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The dropwatch package contains a utility that provides packet monitoring services.
Prior to this update, the dropwatch utility could become unresponsive because it was waiting for a deactivation acknowledgement to be issued by an already deactivated or stopped service. With this update, dropwatch detects an attempt to deactivate/stop an already deactivated/stopped service and no longer hangs.
All users of dropwatch are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
