Thanks Luke;

This is why we came to the conclusion that trying to guess the DES salt
was very hard. So we modified the MIT Kerberos get_in_tkt() function to
get it to pass back the DES salt if we supply it with an empty salt
buffer in the PA_OPTIONS. We will send this change back to MIT.  Perhaps
they will find it useful.
