Hello Hans,

looking into spec files many rpms have already corrected their
scripts to not show this error. Most by checking if the app is installed
before calling it, some by redirecting the error output to /dev/null.
So it is a known issue where most maintainers have already fixed
their packaging.

The error output is a real bug, so just closing this is not very
good. I understand you are not interested in pursuing this, then
you should keep such bugs open until the discussion about this is
over. It is good you explicitely allow others to change things in
your packages.
