    742 whitelist blacklist problem

      Having a really difficult time with patch analysis in 742. We have a good number of servers running applications that break (or the vendor does not support the app) when the latest service pack is installed. This could be an OS service pack, a SQL service pack, etc. In 73x working around this was easy, we just used a patch smart group that did not contain any service packs. I would expect whitelists to perform the same functions in 74, however they do not. Running a PA job with a whitelist that does NOT include any service packs, service packs are still reported in the analysis. I've also tried a blacklist that specifically excludes the service packs, but the service pack is still reported as missing.
