I would like to report an inconsistency with the kerberos
implementation of login and the SunOS4.1.x version of login.
Please see the excerpt from the 'fbtab' man page below.

I have modified login.c to perform this function. If anyone
is interested I can send the code modifications.


From the man page.

FBTAB(5)                  FILE FORMATS                   FBTAB(5)

NAME
     fbtab - framebuffer table

SYNOPSIS
     /etc/fbtab

DESCRIPTION
     The /etc/fbtab file contains information  that  is  used  by
     login(1),  getty(8) and the window system (for example, sun-
     view(1)) to change the owner, group, and permissions of win-
     dow  system  devices  upon  logging into or out of a console
     device. By default, all lines in  this  file  are  commented
     out.   That  is, all window security is disabled.  To enable
     window security, edit /etc/fbtab, log out, and log back  in.
     You  must  edit  this  file  before  window  security can be
     enabled.

                                 .

If the changes are under a an appropriate #ifdef for SUN OS, and they're
not derived from proprietary code, so you can give us a permission to
redistribute your changes, we would be more than happy to include them
in our next distribution of Kerberos V5 code.  As you must have noticed,
our login was derived from BSD 4.3, so it very naturally did not have
Sun OS specific code.  If the code is Sun proprietary code, though, we
will be unable to redistribute it.
