This has come up on the kerberos list before.  I posted diffs
Thu, 02 Aug 2001 01:13:34 -0400 subject "Can we rename a principal yet?"
against these 4 files
that enabled this to work, at least for the regular cases.
Those cases include passwords salted with the principal name,
using the KRB5_KDB_SALTTYPE_SPECIAL trick.

I can certainly post updated diffs if you think that will help;
we currently run an updated variation of these diffs in production
using k5 1.2.5 for UMICH.EDU .
