Whether it's a bug at all depends on what the krb5_get_credentials() API
docs say about increds->keyblock.  The lack of MIT krb5 API docs doesn't

Now that you know what the calling convention for
krb5_copy_keyblock_data() you should be able to fix your test program to
properly initialize the keyblock field of the creds passed to
krb5_get_credentials() as input creds.

[I'll try to refrain from getting into the problems with encoding
krb5_keyblock internals knowledge into your apps.]
