Update Information:

This update updates the package from version 1.9.3 to version 1.9.4, mainly to pick up a fix for an interoperability problem with Windows Server 2008R2 read-only domain controllers, and incorporates the upstream fix for CVE-2012-1015, in which the KDC could be made to attempt to free an uninitialized pointer.

  is available as an anchor or intermediate on the client (RT#7183)
* Fri Jun  1 2012 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.9.3-2

  S4U2Proxy with the principal name of the proxying principal (part of #761317)

  it is proxying, which results in the ccache looking more normal to consumers
