Note that the cited thread was completely incorrect about jcifs-krb5
not supporting signatures - it DOES support signatures (but I see you
know this becasue you see sigatures working if signingPreferred is true).

So is this problem specific to the jcifs-krb5 package? Does the regular
stock jcifs package have this problem? If the problem is specific to
jcifs-krb5 then look at the logic behind both and figure out where the
bug is.

Note the jcifs-krb5 package is experimental and is not supported. I
barely have enough time for the stock package.

For now, just set signingPreferred = true and be happy.

But thanks for the feedback. We need it if there is any hope of
integrating the krb5 functionality.
