Description From 2008-08-18 12:29:31
The gss_import_sec_context and gss_import_sec_context functions in GT 4.2.0 can
in some cases lose the compression algorithm used. This depends on the version
of OpenSSL that GSSAPI is compiled with. To work around this (and XIO GSI
driver bugs when the data was compressed) in 4.0 branch, I had disabled
compression, but didn't get that patch merged into trunk and 4.2.

This problem can cause GRAM2 job submissions to fail with
GLOBUS_GRAM_PROTOCOL_ERROR_PROTOCOL_FAILED if the gatekeeper and job manager
are linked with a GSSAPI that uses compression.
