Updated setup packages that fix three bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The setup packages provide a set of important system configuration and setup files, such as passwd, group, and profile.
Prior to this update, the "/etc/profile" script used a non-portable method for undefining the pathmunge() function. As a consequence, the script could encounter problems when using the korn shell (ksh). This update modifies the undefining method of the function to work more efficiently with alternative shells.

Prior to this update, the accounts for the haproxy system user, the jbosson-agentsystem user, and the jbosson system group were created with dynamic uid/gid assignment, which is not recommended for network daemons and for sensitive data. With this update, the static uid/gid pair 188:188 can be used to create these users and groups.
All users of setup are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
