Description Robbie Harwood 2018-01-29 17:03:20 UTC
krb5 uses readdir() on Linux for processing the config files in, e.g., /etc/krb5.conf.d.  This doesn't sort the files, which means the order of their processing is undefined.

This has been patched in Fedora already.

For verification, probably SanityOnly is best, since it's undefined behavior.
