If it's not hard to reproduce, details would be helpful.  Which
release of Condor did you try (version, OS, architecture)? Which
versions and architectures of RHEL, CentOS, SuSE had problems?
What were the error messages?

Thanks for the report!  That's exactly why we're asking.

Nothing is set in stone, but I believe we're talking about making
the change for 7.5.1 or 7.5.2.  The first stable release to
contain these changed would be 7.6.0.
