The support for the MSLSA: ccache causes any application that attempts
to access it to crash.  As long as the application does not attempt
to access the MSLSA: the application can use Kerberos safely.
Unfortunately, this also means that single sign-on on 64-bit Windows
versions prior to Vista RC1 will not work with a 32-bit version of MIT
KFW.   I do not know when Vista RC1 will be released.

MIT is working on native 64-bit Kerberos support.
