    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.dfsg.1-2.1+lenny1.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.0~git20100726.dfsg.1-2+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution

    We recommend that you upgrade your heimdal packages.
