I got this warning when applying the first patch in the set:

new blank line at EOF.
warning: 1 line adds whitespace errors.

I know it's minor but I'm always happier when patches apply cleanly.

The build went fine but when testing I was unable to logon at all. I'm
using the same methodology as in except
that I'm running against 51c0f63 and using the v6 patch set.

psql simply hangs and never returns. I have attached a pcap of the
psql/postgres session generated with:

tcpdump -i lo -nnvvXSs 1514 port 5432 -w gssapi.pcap

If you would like me to capture more information please let me know
specifically how you would like me to capture it.

I reverted to v5 and got the same behavior I was seeing with v4 and v5,
namely that I can only logon occasionally and usually get this error:

psql: expected authentication request from server, but received

Using a fresh build from 51c0f63 I can logon reliably every time so I
don't think there's an issue in my environment.
