question regarding use of krb5_context and krb5_auth_context

Thanks for the quick reply.  One last question.  If I were to use
multiple krb5_context's in a multi-threaded application and wrap a
lock/mutex around all the krb5_* calls, should I expect things to work
fine?  I.e., never call the krb5 api from more than one thread at the
same time.

	thanks, jc
