I haven't used them personally, but unless I'm mistaken there was a discussion about them in either the RS40 or RS50 owners thread. I think they were selling a replacement bare lamp for the RS40/50, but when somebody ordered it, what they got was obviously not the correct lamp. The suspicion is that they were selling an older model RSXX lamp, and incorrectly advertising it for the RS40/50.
So, I guess, make sure that what they're sending you is really an RS20 lamp.
