New upgrade of krb5-auth-dialog was provided as https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/krb5-auth-dialog-0.10-1.fc11, which may affect this bug.

Please retest and let us know, whether you can still reproduce this bug.
Comment 5 Michal Nowak 2009-06-13 18:55:50 EDT
I am on krb5-auth-dialog-0.8-4.fc11.i586 and this is fixed already (and is in F-11 for some time; by Matthias in pre-F-11-update).
