yeah - Fedora packaging separated the 2 several releases ago and I
gather that all of the new packages are now doing that but RHEL releases
aren't likely to change.

I thought the name calling was rather rude/harsh and uncalled for and
think you did a pretty good job of tracking down the problem.

Generally though, in your setup I would probably discourage cross subnet
browse lists because they can get large and slow and generate excessive
traffic. I would probably segregate student computers and teacher
computers and not display teacher computers to students, etc.
