Problems with VOMS in glite 3.1 updates 27-32

The VOMS server packages in glite 3.1 updates 27-32 have several issues that prevent proper functionality. It is recommended to downgrade to glite-VOMS_oracle-3.1.8-0 or glite-VOMS_mysql-3.1.8-0. Note that this version suffers from logging problems, see https://savannah.cern.ch/bugs/?31476

Update: this bug was closed on Dec 23 2008. Glite update 35 http://glite.web.cern.ch/glite/packages/R3.1/updates.asp#3.1_Update_35 released on 14 November 2008 introduced a new VOMS server with several fixes need to test this version.

The value set for '--uri' does not contain the ':vomsd_port' suffix, which is important for voms-proxy-info.
