1.0.4 was shipped as a Fedora Core 2 update earlier today, just run
"up2date" and you'll get the new packages (may have to wait for mirrors
to catch up).

For security fixes it's sometimes easier to use a backport to be able to
get the update out quicker, so that's what we did for the 1.0.3 fix, but
that is not the general policy for Fedora as it is for RHEL or was for
RHL in the past.

I intend to continue issuing 1.0.x releases as FC2 updates.
