First of all many thanks for nginx.

I have a machine where 'ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;' plus Internet
Explorer 7 (win 2003/XP) causes segmentation fault in Kerberos
--- cut ---
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

The host OS is RHEL 5.3 fully updated. I tried 32 and 64 bit versions
from 0.6.32 to 0.6.38 with and without perl. The CPU is Intel(R)
Xeon(R) CPU E5410 @ 2.33GHz. Exactly the same binary works on other
machines (including KVM virtual ones) on CentOS 5.3 fully updated and
I was using it on another machine with RHEL (have no access to that
one any more).

Can I help further? Can I disable all kerberos related stuff in the
meantime somehow?
