Description Matthew Sachs 2003-07-06 23:52:28 EDT
Description of problem: mutt fails to authenticate against a Windows Kerberos
Domain Controller.  When a valid Kerberos ticket is held and the user attempts
to connect to a Kerberos-enabled IMAP server, where the KDC for the Kerberos
domain is a Windows-based server, the message "SASL authentication failed." is
displayed and mutt exits.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 5:1.4.1-1

How reproducible: Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a Kerberos ticket from a Windows KDC.
2. Attempt to connect to an IMAP server which will use your ticket to
authenticate you.
Actual results: "SASL authentication failed."

Expected results: Contents of inbox displayed.

Additional info: The attached patch, which was applied to the mutt CVS tree but
is also applicable to 1.4.1, solves the problem.  See mutt bug #1556 (link given
in the URL for this bug) for details of the issue.
