Definitely - had it myself and corrected it (now on 2.2.14)

RH (RHAS3, RHEL3) mostly gives you mostly good and well maintained
stuff, with the exception of (apart from a few other things) Openldap
2.x and BDB 4.2. The thing about RHAS3 is, that it is a basic OS and may
be added to or deleted from at will, as long as RedHat's up2date is
notified of all changes and what to leave alone.

OL 2.2.14, BDB 4.2.52/2 patches, Cyrus SASL 2.1.18 installed as
alternatives to RHAS3 standard utilities in /usr/local are super stable
and fast as the wind, on superior hardware (in my case IBM eServer 32

I've just completed the largest OL 2.2.14/Postfix 2.1.4/Courier 3.0.6
installation I've ever had on RHAS3 and the above combination leaves me
breathless as regards to stable and advanced technique. Please do not
talk about RH "crap" without comparing "crap" to other OSs' and distros'
"crap" :)
