Well, I *thought* I had a virgin tarball, since that would have been the
whole point of having both a 1.2.8su and a 1.2.8. However, the "virgin"
1.2.8, er, wasn't. *sigh* Sorry about that; I was operating on false
I just downloaded a really virgin 1.2.8 tarball from web.mit.edu, and
indeed, you're both entirely correct and long was always used in the
ticket read/write routines. We must have "fixed" this years back, before
I was working on Kerberos code, and never got those patches accepted back.
Sorry about the wild goose chase; I'll make sure the institutional memory
hangs on to the fact *this* time.
