Description of problem:
Upstream gnome bugs 302183 and 306877 report a problem (and a simple fix) when doing NTLM authentication using libsoup (used by evolution-connector package to talk to Exchnage servers).
Usernames of the form DOMAIN\USERNAME fail, due to libsoup getting confused about the domain to supply to the server in the type 3 NTLM message.
There's a simple fix, which should be evaluated for a RHEL4 update.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See upstream bug
A version of the libsoup package for RHEL4 i386 with the fix is downloadable
This was built in our regular build system, but hasn't been through QA.
See also bug #166627, which appears to be a separate problem in the NTLM
authentication code that will randomly cause failures on x86_64, with the same
visible symptoms to the user as this bug (it's a 64-bit cleanliness bug in the
code in libsoup and evolution-connector).
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
