I have that same problem.  First, this advisory is a wee bit old, and 
second the files in that rpm are as you say, obviously dated to well 
before this vulnerability was published.  Like Dec 8, 2005.

If this is indeed a vulnerability fix, I think we have a reasonable 
expectation of finding the executable code at least as new as the 
show-license file.

Something doesn't quite smell edible here methinks.
