What is the impact of this?
The renewals were occurring
multiple times. This meant increased load on
the Kerberos server as well as extra log messages in SSSD's DEBUG logs
(as noticed by Kaushik)
Is it a problem with the shipped version?
Can it cause a leak or other issues?
It is technically a leak,
but it is a very small amount of memory (one
additional tevent_timer object for each time we switched from offline
mode to online mode).
Should we add it to errata?
I think that's should be
decided by QE. I'm on the fence. The memory
leak doesn't concern me (since it's small) but the additional load on
the KDC might be worth the errata.
