Thanks very much for your reply. I hadn't given any
consideration to this issue at all. What can I read
to learn more about this thread issue? I have only
the most basic understanding of it, and I had the
impression that MIT Kerberos V was sort-of the "Gold
Standard" Kerberos implementation and as such, I
thought I wouldn't have to worry about things like
threads and stuff.
If there is a patch the the MIT Kerberos sources to
resolve this, could someone post it? I just noticed
that v1.3.2 of MIT Kerberos V has recently been
released. Does this problem also apply to 1.3.2, and
will the patch work on 1.3.2?
Thanks very kindly for pointing this out.
