Arhh... This brings back memories.

Now I just need to remember if GLOB_QUOTE is actually required or not.

I suspect you are probably looking at an older version of the Debian
package, which renamed the function in order to eliminate this type of
problem. (I thought the new name was roken_glob() though).

Unfortunately, this patch didn't apply cleanly to Heimdal 0.7.1 (I
haven't investigated in detail why), and I was hoping it wouldn't be
required. I might be mistaken.

Just the header file then, which I delete in debian/rules.

Not familiar with this. Maybe thats why I was confused.

I sent the message to heimdal-bugs.

Maybe heimdal-discuss would be more appropriate?

Unfortunately, my laptop computer is throwing one of its "I will not
power on unless you remove my power source and batteries for several
days" tantrum, so I can't double check right now. Hmmm. Really need to
fix this.
