krb5-1.2.6 on Win32

Some more information on performance. 

It looks like the FTP and Zone Alarm don't get along. When both
are running, they use 100% of the CPU, and a transfer takes 72 seconds
at 27Kb.  If I cancel ZoneAlarm, The FTP uses 100% but the transfer
takes only 5 seconds with 3500Kb rate.

Its the same with passive mode.

So the performance problem looks like a newer Zone Alarm, not Kerberos. 
Sorry about that.

The krb5.exe is still slow, as Ken also pointed out.
