ZXID-0.79 fixes leap calc (failure due to NotBefore)



It seems the previous announcement mail has not come through the
list so here comes again.

Unfortunate leap year calculation bug has been found and fixed.

You should upgrade to 0.79 as soon as possible. If you can not
upgrade, consider using following work around:

A leap year calculation error is causing SSO assertions to be rejected starting March 1, 2011. The telltale error message in log is

    t zxidsso.c:476 zxid_validate_cond zx E ssof: NotBefore rejected with slop of 39600. Time to validity 86400 secs. Our gettimeofday: 1298938582 secs, remote: 1299024982 secs 

Best fix is to upgrade to 0.79 release or latest from anon git. If you can't upgrade, use the BEFORE_SLOP to ignore the problem, i.e. put in /var/zxid/zxid.conf

   BEFORE_SLOP=170000
