Is defending against a malicious domain controller something that makes 
sense? Presumably a malicious DC can issue and use domain administrator 
tickets, which should allow it to instruct samba to do pretty much 
anything. But for all I know, such tickets may not be all-powerful, in 
which case it makes sense to defend against malformed PACs.
