Description Simo Sorce 2010-06-17 18:17:09 UTC
The current behaviot of the GSSAPI library is to break GSS wrap/unwrap operations when the original ticket, used to set up the connection, expires.

Recently upstream has finally decided that this is not useful and has committed changes to trunk to change this behaviour. Applications can still query GSSAPI and tear down the connection when the original ticket expires if they want so.

We should backport these changes in RHEL 6 as this was a popular request from many stakeholders.
