With the help of Steve Langasek I managed to get a term server like 

Samba 2.2.5 seems to work OK, even though the term serve client (on Linux) 
does some funny things.

The server says MaxVCs = 1, but the client sets a different VC number in 
each session setup and X (vc 0 for the first, vc 1 for the second, vc 2 
The session key in each case was the same as the session key returned in 
the NegProt response. It seems that there is no way to choose a different 
encryption key.
