Subject: arora: hangs whilst trying to access webserver using GSS-Negotiate
Date: Thu, 18 Jun 2009 00:34:36 +0000
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: arora
Version: 0.7.0-1
Severity: normal

If I try to access <>, arora tries
to connect but never succeeds, and simply sits there continuing to
indicate that it's trying.  The /dump/ directory is only accessible for
authenticated users, and users can only be authenticated via Kerberos 5
(using GSS-Negotiate).  The UI does, however, remain responsive.

My complaint is not that arora does not support GSS-Negotiate (although
if that is the case, I will be happy to open another bug against Qt
Webkit for that) but that it never displays failure if it does not.  To
wit, if arora doesn't support the required authentication scheme, then
it should say so and give up immediately.

The same problem occurs if I use https instead of http.  Neither
Konqueror nor Iceweasel demonstrate this problem.  If you need more
information, please feel free to ask.
