I was trying to remove the non-working tomcat with the idea of replacing 
it with something else and openoffice went with it.  Odd, but fixable.

Thanks, but I thought the bug was related to the way the way the 
java-containing rpms were built (or maybe installed..) and this rpm just 
fixes the process.  What will it take to get working indexes into the 
jar files for tomcat (and probably other apps) on an existing system?

Also, is there any chance of duplicating those Red Hat sun jdk rpms? I 
think you've said no before, but I'm curious about how debian was able 
to manage it: http://packages.debian.org/unstable/source/sun-java5 if it 
is still problematic to redistribute.
