1.1.1. RHBA-2009:1652: bug fix update

Note

This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1652
Updated acl packages that fix a bug are now available.
Access Control Lists (ACLs) are used to define finer-grained discretionary access rights for files and directories. The acl packages contain the getfacl and setfacl utilities needed for manipulating access control lists.
This update fixes the following bug:
* the "setfacl" command, which sets the access control lists for files, always returned an exit status of 0, even when the command failed and printed out error messages. With this update, setfacl exits with the correct exit status upon failure. (BZ#368451)
* running "setfacl -- --test" caused setfacl to segmentation fault. This has been fixed in this update. (BZ#430458)
* running the "setfacl" command with the '-P' flag, which is the short form of the '--physical' option, which is supposed to cause "setfacl" to skip over any symbolic links it encounters, did not work as expected: symbolic links were still followed. This update fixes this so that the '-P' flag works as expected and symbolic links are silently skipped over. (BZ#436070)
* the "setfacl" command failed to resolve relative symbolic links when it encountered them unless they were specified with a trailing forward-slash character (in the case of relative symbolic links to directories), or the script or shell prompt's working directory was the directory which contained the relative symbolic link(s). With this update, relative symbolic links are handled correctly by setfacl regardless of where they are encountered or what their target is. (BZ#500095)
* the "getfacl" and "setfacl" commands did not properly handle non-ASCII characters with the result that calling either command on a system with the correct locale settings still produced incorrect output, such as octal character representations. With this update, getfacl and setfacl are now able to produce correct output when using non-ASCII character sets. (BZ#507747)
All users of Access Control Lists should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
