Just to elaborate on this a bit more, sometimes we will file the bug 
upstream if we can reproduce it and totally understand your report and 
feel we can act as the reporter.  In that case we will probably not ask 
you to file it upstream, as we did do it.

In other cases it might be better for the user to file the upstream bug 
... and we will usually ask for you to do so.

If you are sure the issue exists in both RHEL and CentOS, then there is 
certainly no problem for you to file in both places.

If you do file in both places (on your own or asked by us), then please 
also add links to the bug in the entries in both places to each other so 
that users can find fixes from both groups easily
