Hi Matthew,

Do you require preauth for your kerberos principals? Ours is broken too, 
if +requires_preauth is set on the principal. It's not specific to 
Sakai, though; it breaks anything in Java trying to get a 
ticket-granting ticket...

My research shows it's been broken since update 25, and I have tickets 
with Redhat and a bug report with Oracle that are both over a week old.

I'd really looooove to get to update 26 :)
