Going back to your original question here, I believe my latest post on
#542512 shows that this assertion is not true -- the ABI is both fully
forward and backwards compatible.
The issue is that tools built against a new libgsasl7 and then run with
older libgsasl7 will generate a linker warning about missing versioning
in the library, which is to be expected. The warning appears harmless,
and does not indicate an ABI compatibility issue as far as I understand.
The second issue is that dicod's init.d script appears to treat the
warning as a fatal error. Possibly it treats anything written to
stdout/stderr as a fatal condition?
So sorry for my confusion, and I really hope that my perception of the
situation is clear now. I get a deja vu about this, I think I've gone
through these experiments before.
