- The RHN Proxy did not work properly if separated from a parent by a slow enough network. Consequently, users who attempted to download larger repodata files and RPMs experienced timeouts. This update changes both RHN Proxy and Red Hat Enterprise Linux RHN Client to allow all communications to obey a configured timeout value for connections.

- Prior to this update, an attempt to install an already-installed package led to an empty transaction that was incorrectly identified as an error. Consequently, the yum-rhn-plugin reported a failed installation action. With this update, yum-rhn-plugin has been modified to return a success code for empty transactions. As a result, a successful installation action is now reported when the package is already installed.
