The remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.
The configuration file /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources had still been set
to 5rolling instead of 51. 5rolling is the development area for
Scientific Linux 5. If a user was using a program that used
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources as a configuration file, they would be
getting development updates in addition to their regular security
updates. This configuration problem is only seen when Scientific Linux
5 is under development, which is about to happen.
