system call interrupt and krb5_change_password

Hi All,

I am using krb5_change_password api to change password.

When the new password entered satisfies the policy requirement, then
password change is successful.

However, when password change is rejected because of AD policy: I am
getting error msg " Interrupted system call " instead of "Password change
rejected" in result_string field.

What could be the possible reasons for this behaviour and how to resolve
this issue ?
