I've noted this on the mailing list too, but just for the record, 
the simplified patch is incorrect. GSSAPI != Kerberos, and even
within the Kerberos space, some vendors ship with
canonicalisation disabled.

If we are going to ship a workaround for this issue (and we 
should), it has to be configurable, and default to 'off', so
users get the current behaviour unless they specifically
request that we trust the DNS.

I'll look into porting my patch across to the OpenBSD codebase.
