Why does Linuxconf always want to reload the network

There is a bug in redhat 6.2, in the file /etc/rc.d/init.d/network. Go at the end and locate the section

	[ -n "$DEV_UP$DEV_DOWN$DEV_RECONF$DEV_RECONF_ALIASES" -o \
	  -n "$DEV_RECONF_ROUTES$IPXINTERNALNET" ]
		echo reload
	exit 0

And change it to

	[ -n "$DEV_UP$DEV_DOWN$DEV_RECONF$DEV_RECONF_ALIASES" -o \
	  -n "$DEV_RECONF_ROUTES$IPXINTERNALNET" ] && \
		echo reload
	exit 0
Notice the && at the end of the second line.
