right. the in-memory-keytab was added (although a keytab-less krb5_rd_req
would have been the better choice - as noted by luke howard) to support
older variants of the heimdal-libs. although the memory-keytab has some
issues (like not supporting win2k3-kvnos) it brings solid support for
running samba3 within win2k-domains on heimdal-0.4x-plattforms.
in fact, all official heimdal-releases require a keytab to work with
samba3, only the heimdal-0.6-snapshots will work without a keytab.
this change will - most probably - break a couple of samba-installations
or force administrators to compile against a newer heimdal-snapshot.
btw: binary-distributions of samba3 (like the samba3-rpms from SerNet) use
a static heimdal-snapshot and thus do not need the keytab.
