1.154.1.  RHBA-2009:1250: bug fix update

Updated nfs-utils-lib packages that fix a bug are now available.
The nfs-utils-lib package contains support libraries required by programs in the nfs-utils package.
These updated packages apply a fix for the following bug:
  • when resolving a group ID, a group's data structure is stored in a buffer. When the buffer size was exceeded, the default no-group value was used in place of the group ID, removing certain user privileges. Larger buffer spaces are now provided when the defined buffer is exceeded, so groups are mapped to the appropriate ID. (BZ#453804)
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
