Thanks for the patch. I'm having a hard time though finding the relevant section to add the 2048 to... I don't see any explicit reference to these key lengths. Could you possibly point me to the code block I should be looking at?

Let me make sure I'm understanding the situation correctly: 1) pubcookie currently assumes a 1024 bit key, and that's what's causing this error. 2) The patch that I have also allows for a 512 bit key. 3) Another, as yet unwritten patch will be necessary to get it working with a 2048 bit key, like mine.

No. You might as well back out that patch, and use the latest one.
Get it at: ftp://mail.cc.umanitoba.ca/src/security_legacy.c.diff
This patch adds a list of key lengths, currently containing 1024 and
512, with zero marking the end. Just add 2048 to the list, recompile
and reinstall both the login server and the authentication server.
