If one chases down KRB5KRB_AP_ERR_BAD_INTEGRITY in the kerberos lists, 
and check the krb5-1.3.4 code of a program like kinit, one ends up 
believing this is the krb5 way of saying incorrect password.

For example, check lines 835-836 of kinit.c
        else if (code == KRB5KRB_AP_ERR_BAD_INTEGRITY)
            fprintf(stderr, "%s: Password incorrect while %s\n", progname,

add to this that if multiple service principle entries exist in 
/etc/krb5.keytab with the same enctype only the first matching kvno and 
enctype will be used.

There seems to be a consensus that this started with 2003 ADS and spread 
to 2000 server ADS.

I have 2 machines out of 5 that hasn't generated this error in several 
days.  3 others do.  Otherwise my 5 Samba 3.0.8pre1-SVN-build-2605 seem 
to be identically configured in global configs.
