1.34.1. RHBA-2009:1559: bug fix available


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as errata RHBA-2009:1559
Updated dbus-python packages that fix an issue with the puplet package updater are now available for Red hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The dbus-python package provides a Python binding to the D-Bus system message bus.
This updated dbus-python package fixes the following bug:
* the puplet icon in the GNOME Notification Area displays notifications when updated packages are available. However, due to an error in the dbus-python bindings, when updates were available, puplet failed to display a notification. This update corrects the dbus-python bindings with the result that puplet is once again able to notify the user of available updates. (BZ#532142)
All users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
