[PPC] e-d-s computes wrong hmac-md5
Last modified: 2009-06-17 09:04:47 EDT
Description of problem:
Since the update from 2.22.3-1 to 2.22.3-2 authentication does not work any
more. I'm using hmac-md5 over ssl to log into imap. Evolution does not say
anything except "Password wrong" <sarcasm>which is really helpful!</sarcasm>
A downgrade to e-d-s-2.22.3-1 "solved" the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Are you sure this is related to IMAP? The 2.22.3-2 update was for address book
authentication. I would not have expected it to affect email accounts.
What types of address books to you have configured?
I don't know what the changes are between 2.22.3-1 and 2.22.3-2. But the result
is clear. When I install 2.22.3-2 then I can't log into my IMAP account and
dovecot (the IMAP server) in debug mode says that the MD5 hashes differ.
A downgrade to 2.22.3-1 "solves" the problem and I can login again. So from an
outside view I would say 2.22.3-2 has a bug.
I'm not sure what address books can be configured. I just use the "standard" one
and import some vCards. That's it.
If you need more informations just tell me.
Release note added. If any revisions are required, please set the
"requires_release_notes" flag to "?" and edit the "Release Notes" field accordingly.
All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
Version bump. Problem still exists. Also in F10.
This seems to be specific for ppc, I see this working fine (without SSL) on an x86_64 Fedora 10. I found bug #459691, where this one seems to be a duplicate of, but reporter found an issue there and said it should be fixed. But it seems it isn't completely. I'll ask there.
Since the last update (2.24.5-1.fc10), CRAM-MD5 works again. Bug closed.
