I spent some time on this today without any luck
reproducing the problem.  My test server was SuSE 9.1 pro
however with heimdal 0.6.1rc3.

I've updated the comments in


And I checked the ticket cache produced by
smbclient //server/share -k from 3.0.5 and 3.0.6.  Same
host principal is used (server$@REALM).

So far, I've not learned of any common thread from the people
who posted on this.  I'm open to suggestions.  (off to
review abartlet's mail to samba-technical about this).

cheers, jerry
