Ooops, actually the version on RHEL3 is krb5-workstation-1.2.7-52
Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2006-04-28 17:06:36 EDT
Adding devel ACK.  Obviously a bug, has potential to break the FTP client, looks
like we've got a reproducer.
Comment 6 Suzanne Yeghiayan 2007-05-08 11:57:03 EDT
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.
