Description of changes:

[1.6.1-17.el5_1.1]

descriptors
  in the RPC library (CVE-2008-0947) (#433596)
- fix storage of delegated krb5 credentials when they've been wrapped up in
  spnego (#436460)

  location to store the flags which would be used to indicate that 
credentials

  can't-resolve-server, and response-too-big errors (#436467)
