I added a lot of code to fix this in 3.0.9 (initial patch
donated by a RedHat engineer). I must admit I do find this
comment a little amusing remembering the problems we had at
Cygnus trying to make the krb5 code easy to use for novice
users (although that was back in 1997-98 so maybe you can
tell me  I'm out of date :-) :-) :-).

Anyway, try 3.0.9 to see if that helps.
