Go ahead and submit a Bugzilla report against s-c-s citing exactly what
you are seeing, what it's not doing, etc. It's been my experience that
the service-config-whatever scripts often get lost in the shuffle of new
packages. When their maintainers get good descriptive Bugzilla reports,
they can frequently push out a good fix in short order.

For example, about six months ago a problem with system-config-httpd was
fixed after lying dormant for almost two releases. IIRC that problem
turned out to be in alchemy, used by s-c-h. It took the maintainer a
couple of months to find and fix the problem, but he eventually got it.

Good luck.
