Hi!

Please do not apply this patch in it's current state. It contains a
small bug that appears to trigger a DOS vulnerability in the MIT
Kerberos libraries. I will submit a new patch shortly that does not
expose this bug to a configurable parameter (it can still be exposed by
hacking the code since the issue appears in the kerberos libs, but
there's not much we can do there. I'm also contacting the MIT Kerberos
team about a fix there)
