Tom we have had multiple reports of this and I imagine your ticket is 
probably one of many in my queue right now.  We are working on it 
internally as well but so far have not made any real progress narrowing 
down the problem.  It *appears* that this is actually unrelated to our 
kerberos update.  As I mentioned previously this looks like the problems 
we have been seeing in win2k3 environments -- almost as if something 
helped spread this issue to win2k as well.
