seen in a ticket as though it were the local realm
(#498554, also very likely #450122)

requests (CVE-2010-1321, #583704)

- fix a null pointer dereference and crash introduced in
our PAM patch that would happen if ftpd was given the
name of a user who wasnt known to the local system,
limited to being triggerable by gssapi-authenticated
clients by the default xinetd config (Olivier Fourdan,

- add upstream patch to fix a few use-after-free bugs,
including one in kadmind (CVE-2010-0629, #578186)
