Description Helmut Schneider 2008-01-18 10:21:06 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 3.5.8)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

When logging in to a Windows Active Directory Domain and connecting to a share KDE corrupts the username if the username is dotted. Example:

You connect to a share and are asked for USER/PASS:


You can connect to the share.

Now you move to another folder/subfolder on the share.

dolphin (and obviously also konqueror) corrupts the username.

Before: domain\user.name
After: domain\u...name

One has to change the back to user.name and then can browse the folder.
Comment 1 Peter Penz 2008-01-18 10:25:58 UTC
Thanks for the information, just to be sure: do you refer to the KDE 4.0 version of Dolphin/Konqi or the KDE 3 version ("Version" is set to 3.5.8...).
Comment 2 Helmut Schneider 2008-01-18 10:45:02 UTC
It is KUbuntu 7.10 and 'about' says 3.5.8. I have some other machines but they run Gnome and are not affected.
Comment 3 Peter Penz 2008-01-18 10:59:59 UTC
OK, I'll check whether this issue still happens within KDE 4...
Comment 4 Tommi Tervo 2008-01-18 11:27:44 UTC
kde4 dolphin doesn't have this issue.

It is solved, great, but - what do I have to do to get that thing fixed on my users' desktops?
Comment 6 Tommi Tervo 2008-01-18 13:35:15 UTC
wait for 3.5.9 or make a local modified version of kdelibs 3.5.8 where this kurl security "feature" is disabled by following patch
Comment 7 Helmut Schneider 2008-01-18 14:07:46 UTC
Thanks. Is there a roadmap when 3.5.9 will be released?
