That would only happen on update afaics.
Only because RHEL4 does not include python-imaging at all. Still, even
for fresh install upgrades from EL4 -> EL5 this package would be downgraded.
Anything fixed in 1.1.6 might reappear due to this downgrade. The
python-imaging ChangeLog is not short.
The least to expect would be to include RHEL5's package _as is_ in EPEL4
and not downgrade it to 1.1.4 and not upgrade it to 1.1.6 either.
