I used krb5-send-pr to report this on 1/31/05.  MIT is aware of it, but 
have no solution yet; perhaps because they don't have an AIX 5.1 system 
to test on.

I was not able to help them much with debugging, because kinit is simply 
jumping to address zero, leaving no stack trace that I can find with dbx.

I've tried building with xlc and gcc; with and without thread support; 
with static and shared libraries.  Nothing has worked.

It works without problems on AIX 5.2!
