I forgot this for some time... as the samba-tool exportkeytab didn't
work, the easiest way to get a proper keytab for decrypting the capture
was apparently just copy secrets.keytab from the Samba DC and feed that
file to Wireshark. At least I've now managed to decrypt the stuff myself.

However, as this is not a test domain, I can't just post such a
sensitive piece of information to Bugzilla. I am, however, ready to send
it in a GPG-encrypted message to Andrew (currently assigned to the bug)
or another trusted Samba dev working on the bug. Would that be OK?
