krb5_kt_resolve error in kfw 3.0

     I noticed that krb5_kt_resolve function returns KRB5_KT_UNKNOWN_TYPE 
on a valid call with a correct keytab name . On further investigation I 
found that the function uses strcmp which is comparing the default prefixes 
with the prefix (FILE:). But the default prefixes do not have colon.

changing the line in ktbase.c from strcmp(tlist->ops->prefix,pfx) to 
strncmp(tlist->ops->prefix,pfx,strlen(tlist->ops->prefix)) fixed the problem.

Did any one notice a similar behaviou ?

Thank you for your time.
