I haven't really looked into it yet, but from past experience I would
guess that they backported the buffer overflow fix to 1.0.2 to make
the 1.0.2-2.1 RPM. That's how they usually handle that sort of thing
-- they'll backport security and major bugfixes but not changes in
functionality. For that, you'll have to wait for Fedora Core 3 or use
one of the custom RPMs. If all you want is to avoid major security holes,
though, just use the updated Fedora RPM.
