1.193.1. RHBA-2009:1575: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1575
An updated star package that fixes a bug is now available.
The star utility is a tape- and disk-archiving tool similar to tar that supports saving Access Control List (ACLs) permission information.
This updated star package fixes the following bug:
* restoring directories which had default ACL permissions set when they were archived with the star utility did not result in those ACL permissions correctly being restored after extraction. This update fixes the problem so that the default ACL permissions are correctly restored on directories extracted from a star archive. (BZ#450994)
All users of star are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
