It's just a bug, which we have fixed in more recent versions.  If it is
seen on RHEL then customers of Red Hat need to file high-severity bugs
in bugzilla.redhat.com and raise via the customer's channels there.

I don't recall the solution being a trivial patch, but that is the kind
of thing RHEL users pay to have sorted out for them.
