Was it applied to 1.2.3 and not to -current? I haven't checked against
1.2.3 specifically.

Doubtful. I'm sure myself and others have asked/mentioned it on krbdev,
but dunno if a specific bug was ever submitted.

Right - and the patch I sent is a very simple way of getting telnetd to
not write out the cache, so that it can start a new one. As is - the
telnetd behavior makes telnet useless for a multi-userid environment.
