Ok, that makes sense. I'm beginning to see what we
should do for this. In the non-forwardable case,
before calling krb5_mk_req_extended() we would do
the same set up as for forwardable :

krb5_auth_con_init(context, auth_context);
krb5_auth_con_setuseruserkey(context, *auth_context, &credsp->keyblock);
krb5_auth_con_setflags(context, *auth_context,

then instead of calling krb5_fwd_tgt_creds()
just malloc an array of chars size GSSAPI_CHECKSUM_SIZE,
into pChksum, set up as we're currenly doing in

        p = pChksum;
        p += 4;
        /* Zero out the bindings fields */
        memset(p, '\0', GSSAPI_BNDLENGTH );
        p += GSSAPI_BNDLENGTH;
        SIVAL(p, 0, 0 );
        p += 4;

	/* As I noticed below, these are the
	   DlgOpt and Dlgth I think. So
	   we don't need these  - so we'd
	   allocate GSSAPI_BNDLENGTH + 8,
	   not GSSAPI_BNDLENGTH + 12 as we
	   currently do. */

        SSVAL(p, 0, 1 );
        p += 2;
        SSVAL(p, 0, 0 );
        p += 2;

krb5_auth_con_set_req_cksumtype( context, *auth_context, GSSAPI_CHECKSUM
authenticator->length = GSSAPI_CHECKSUM_SIZE;
authenticator->data = (char *)pChksum;

and we should be creating 8003 checksum packets.

Ah, these are the values here :

        SSVAL(p, 0, 1 );
        p += 2;
        SSVAL(p, 0, 0 );
        p += 2;

- got it I think.

This is too great a change for the next release (19th)
so I think I'm going to go with my patch if it works,
but I think I can make this work for the 3.3 release.

No more non-8003 checksums :-).
