One thing we noticed is that krb5.exe had a change somewhere and doesn't update
the ticket list as nearly often as it used to.  You can _use_ the ticket
quickly, it just doesn't show up that quickly.  We fixed that here so
it updates the list after you get a ticket (and delete the tickets).

We're using FileZilla, so I can't speak for the transfer speed (I don't
remember measuring it, but it seemed reasonable).  Kerberized PuTTY
seems fast enough for us.
