The patch I gave you has been incorporated into Heimdal, and will be
included in Samba soon.

One issue appears to be due to decoding a PAC created with the AES keys
that only domains in functional level 2008 and above generate.  I'll
work with the Heimdal team to sort the rest out.

There is also another issue, related to DNS timeouts.  Samba4 currently
does not react well to those, so ensure that DNS is always working (yes,
we are well aware of the issue and the challenge in fixing the event
handling and timeout handling).
