Just FYI; if you're calling krb5_init_ets(), you shouldn't.  In the "old
days", you had to call this, but this is now performed by krb5_init_context().

This is of course application-dependent.

Weeeelll ... this depends.  In the majority of "true" Kerberized applications,
you never deal with the user's password at all.

>do verification on ticket upon successful authentication
>store ticket information until user logs out

In terms of these items ... what exactly are you doing?  I think that
might help us figure out which functions you need to call.
