Ooops, actually the version on RHEL3 is krb5-workstation-1.2.7-52
Adding devel ACK. Obviously a bug, has potential to break the FTP client, looks
like we've got a reproducer.
Unfortunately this issue was not resolved in RHEL 3.9 and it is now too late as
we are past Beta Freeze.
Since RHEL 3.9 is the last release for RHEL 3, if you still want this issue
fixed, please work with Red Hat Support and request an async errata.
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal this
decision by reopening this request.
