More on the Solaris ssh stuff (part 2)
As an update on the Solaris ssh stuff:
Sun has just today released version 08 of patch 114356, which fixes the 'xmalloc: zero size' problem (charmingly described in the patch README as 'New ssh in Sol. 9 exits if the key fingerprint cannot be found in the known_host files'), but not the problems with mech_krb5.so and the GSS stuff.
This is a good step forward, and it fixes the most important issue, since the xmalloc problem actually makes ssh unusable while the GSS stuff just spews noxious messages. But I remain not very happy with how long it's taken Sun to fix this ssh bug; 114356-07 was released on March 21st, which means it took just over three months. (I can't imagine a Linux distribution letting a trivially reproducible fatal ssh bug sit for three weeks, much less three months.)
Maybe Sun considers ssh an unimportant utility. If so, someone please disabuse them of this notion.
