100% binary compatibility can *never* exist for whatever RHEL rebuild, so
I presume you'll never win a court case without specific other evidence
of the problem.

In reality, the chance that a RHEL rebuild is causing an incompatibility
problem is very small, but it's my experience that big companies will
always try to blame you and/or the rebuild OS, unless proven otherwise.
