Slightly different behavior concerning the transfer protocol selection in 1.8.0

Comments provided by Timur :

dCache SRM used to incorrectly select transfer protocol on basis of its internal priorities, considering the array of protocols sent by the srm client as an unordered set. The latest code is changed to consider the client's protocol list to be ordered and prioritized. Unfortunately this exposed the defect in the current srmcp client, it sends the dcap protocol ahead of the gsiftp protocol in its list. The next release of the srmcp client will address this, in the mean time, please specify gsiftp protocol as the first protocol in the list using for example the following option: "-protocols=gsiftp,dcap".

The corresponding Server and Client releases are now available (1.7.0-35) on our download area.
