NFS4 krb5i mounts timeout

Bug Description

Version: 1:1.2.6-2ubuntu1

nfsv4 mounts via krb5i stop working. The client reports nfs: server servername not responding, still trying, and the mount process doesn't complete.

Downgrading to 1:1.2.5-3ubuntu3 from precise fixes the problem.

(although that downgrade seems to tickle an aptitude or dpkg bug that causes rpc.svcgssd to be missing after the downgrade. Reinstalling the same (old) version causes rpc.svcgssd to reappear)

I am having the same bug on an armhf install of raring. The only difference from the original bug report is that I use krb5p versus krb5i.

Going through Debian's bugtracker, I found this bug:

Rebuilt the package with the patch from upstream (;a=commit;h=cb3b81d6c4167ede8886115e271584a96ea55565) and things seem to work.

Any other testing that I should do to help see if this is the right fix?
