After being bitten by this and talking to Sam, I'm planning to port
Jeff's patch to MIT Kerberos.
My plan is to have us write out a 32 bit issue_date, and the "alignment
record" as suggested by Jeff's patch. The record will be ignored, but
will not be optional just yet. I understand that may have to change
before the patch is accepted, but I don't want to deal with it just yet.
The first half of this change (32 bit issue_dates) is done and at
I expect the alignment record will be done later tonight, though I
wouldn't mind any feedback in the mean time.
