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.

Bug Fixes

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.
BZ#839410, BZ#860221
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.
