Hardly a problem getting a bug report - just put pam_krb5 into the system,
run it in debug mode, and the error appears.  I get it every time.

Anyway, the bug is reported.

Heimdal does indeed have it's own libcom_err, but pam_krb5.so is pointing at
the right one - e2fsprogs' version is .so.2, while Heimdal's is .so.1.  I
don't think that's the problem.
