krb5-clients: ftp gives spurious permanent error


From: Francesco Potorti`
Subject: krb5-clients: ftp gives spurious permanent error

Package: krb5-clients
Version: 1.2.4-5
Severity: normal

Since installing the kerberos 5 clients on a Debian system, Emacs'
ange-ftp has gotten confused by this message:

address@hidden ftp ftp.it.debian.org
Connected to ftp.bofh.it.
220 ready, dude (vsFTPd 1.0.0: beat me, break me)
530 Please login with USER and PASS.
530 Please login with USER and PASS.
KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type
Name (ftp.it.debian.org:pot):

As you see, before the prompt, two 530 messages are given, which can be
safely ignored.  Unfortunately, ange-ftp takes them seriously and fails.

According to RFC 959, however, ange ftp is correct, because a 5xy error
is a permanent error.  Is that indeed the case?  Is the kerberised ftp
wrong?  I think so.
