That's not really the problem -- the problem is that apps use things
that are not part of the documented API.

Heimdal is an *independent* Kerberos implementation, which, as far as
I know, was written according to protocol and API documentation.  It's
no wonder things that are *internal to the implementation* are different.

I think they can hardly be faulted for atrocities committed by other
