Hi.  It has taken a while to respond to your message because the
0x501-style keytab file predates anyone here currently working on

I don't think any released version of MIT Kerberos has ever generated
these files.  I believe that some alpha releases(before 1.0) did
generate these files and DCE 1.0 used them.

I don't think we have a good way to generate 0x501 keytabs.  I wonder
whether anyone is still using them at all.
