1.78.1. RHBA-2009:1676: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1676
An updated iptstate package that resolves an issue is now available.
The iptstate utility displays the states held by your stateful firewall in a top-like manner.
This updated iptstate package fixes the following bug:
* iptstate used a curses output function in single-run mode where curses is not used. Running "ipstate -s -S [address] -D [address]" caused ipstate to crash with a Segmentation Fault error. Note: running the command without the single-run mode switch (-s) did not crash. With this update, the bug is fixed and iptstate runs in single-run mode correctly, as expected. (BZ#474381)
All iptstate users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
