Thank you for the testing.

Odd. I did build both arches. x86_64 was re-rebuilt after the i386
version, which is why it has a newer date.

I will go back to the drawing board and make sure the patches are in place.

If I may ask one more thing ... I think we should continue the current
effort in the bug tracker rather than here on this list. Would you
mind filing a new request at http://bugs.centos.org under the
CentOS-6-Plus category ?
