I believe that you are running into the problem of authenticating
as the name the user logged in with.  Remember that Windows tries to
be case insensitive whereas Kerberos is case sensitive.

You must log into Windows using the name

	claude at MYREALM.FOO.COM

instead of

	claude at myrealm.foo.com
