So, I've been running krb5 around the house lately, and I noticed
that my users can't use xdm to log in unless I've provided local
passwords on the machine.  xlockmore also doesn't build by default
with krb5 support and when you enable it, it doesn't work.

So, in short, I've hacked up xdm and xlockmore to use krb5 for my
own use and wanted to put out a quick note about it in case anyone
else is having the same problem.  If so, have a look at the code
that I provide on, and if you
find any bugs/problems please send me a note.
