updated to no longer use DES for the encryption of tickets. Additional
migration steps are needed to fully set the update into effect. For more

In addition the 'encrypt' option to the 'vos' tool was fixed.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.12.1+dfsg-4+squeeze2.
