Updated dbus packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
D-Bus is a system for sending messages between applications. It is used for the system-wide message bus service and as a per-user-login-session messaging facility.

Bug Fix

Due to improper holding of file handles by D-Bus and gnome-vfs-daemon (specifically in the gtk_file_chooser_dialog_new() function), running a firmware update application on an IBM tape device caused a file handle to be opened for that tape device and never released. With this update, all open file handles are now properly closed, and the aforementioned application no longer holds the tape device indefinitely.
Users of dbus are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug. For the update to take effect, all running instances of dbus-daemon and all running applications using the libdbus library must be restarted, or the system rebooted.
