Nobody decided to make your life hell.  Software is complicated,
especially the loader, and fixes sometimes have unintended side
effects.

The bug in question fixed a problem where anaconda would stop at the
network configuration screen regardless of what command line arguments
are specified.

I'd do it like this, given a checkout of the anaconda source:  First I'd
do git log and look for the bug number since we're good about putting
the bug numbers in the changelogs.  Then I'd get the sha1sum from there
(it's e727238ded39f839b8230e0fef25825815336a68 by the way) and do a git
show with that to see exactly what changed.
