Doh! A fine example of a brown-bag release :-(

I did test this before I uploaded it, I have no idea how my terminal
managed to boot...

I found the problem, but it takes a while to build new packages. In the
meantime, you can revert to the old package. The 32bit repository has
been back-rev'd, the 64bit repository should be done in 10 minutes or so...

	rpm -e --nodeps ltsp_i386
	yum clean all
	yum install ltsp_i386
